When and what is Valentine's Day?

Valentine's Day is celebrated on February 14th every year by lovers worldwide. But why, actually?

There is a long story behind this special day when gifts of flowers and chocolate are usually given today. Like many other holidays, Valentine's Day has its roots in religion.

Originally it was the commemoration of Saint Valentinus, a 3rd-century saint. He was martyred on February 14, 269 AD. executed. According to legend, he married Christian couples despite the ban and gave loved one's flowers from his garden.

It was only in the 14th century that the custom of celebrating love on this day arose.
