Valentine annual feast romantic or tragic? Before you start sending those gifts cards, roses, airtime, chocolate, kisses, setting the table for lunch, organizing dates and couples seminars, going out in red and white fitted dress, take a while to read and have understanding of what you are cerebrating.
Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is celebrated annually on February 14. Originating as a Western Christian feast day for honoring one or two early saints named Valentinus Valentine’s Day is recognized as a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and romantic love in many regions across the world.Over the years (and centuries), Valentine’s Day has been a religious celebration, an ancient ritual day, and a commercial holiday. All that change means the meaning of Valentine’s Day is truly whatever you want it to be: You can skip the celebrations completely, buy yourself some chocolate or flowers, or express your love and appreciation for the people in your life, whether they’re co-workers, romantic partners, friends, or family members.
Look nice and lovely right? There is a reason behind that, and someone actually made that a reality. See how it all began
Just like every other holidays celebration, there is also a reason behind Valentine’s day.
In the third century, the Roman Empire was ruled by Emperor Claudius II Gothicus.

In fact, he was getting into so many wars during the third century that he was having a difficult time recruiting enough soldiers.
Valentine’s sacrificial love had since been translated into gitf cards as these:
It’s surprising to know that Valentine’s Day is really founded on the concept of love in marriage. On this Valentine’s Day, what are you doing to keep the love in your marriage burning? While giving a gift and card, having a candlelight dinner, and sharing special words of love are all important, the true spirit of Valentine’s Day needs to last throughout the year.
