What is the history behind Valentine's Day?

This day originated from a Christian feast day and it was celebrated in the honour a Christian martyr named Saint Valentine. Saint Valentine was a Roman saint who was a Bishop in the Roman Empire. Saint Valentine was famous for performing clandestine Christian weddings for those soldiers who were forbidden to marry. According to the rules of Roman emperor Claudius II, soldiers were forbidden to grow their family. The reason behind this rule was that the Emperor thought that married men will not be able to make good soldiers.

Most Roman soldiers recognised Saint Valentine because of his ring. Saint Valentine wore a purple amethyst ring and due to this Roman soldiers asked him to perform the marriage for them. However, this act caused the death of Saint Valentine. The emperor Claudius II ordered his execution on 14th February and this incident happened in the 3rd century. Valentine was arrested and the emperor had him beaten to death and after that, his head was cut off.

Saint Valentine’s name became famous in society for organising love ceremonies for people who are in love. People remember him as he died for love and he is known as the symbol of love. He took the initiative to make sure that two loved ones are not separated because of any kind of draconian rules and regulations. This is the history that defines the importance of love and how hard it was for Roman soldiers to get married to their loved ones. Further, martyrdom was honoured by the Catholic Church and they celebrated St. Valentine's Day. While the story is a tragic one, people remember and celebrate Saint Valentine martyrdom as love day.
