Valentine’s Day, also known as Saint Valentines’s Day, originated as a church holiday on February 14th to honor martyrs of the faith – saints whose names were Valentine or Valentinus. It is believed that the first heart valentine note was sent by a Valentine who was in prison for a girl he loved. Valentines notes have been recorded for as far back as the Middle ages. While the meaning and celebrations of Valentine’s Day has changed, it has remained as a special day to shower with love those we hold close.
Valentine’s day can create a variety of emotions for different people. For some it creates great satisfaction celebrating the love you have between you, your spouse, and your friends & family.
