What is Valentine's Day?
The history behind this Americanized holiday is slightly confusing. In the past the Catholic Church actually recognized three different saints name “Valentine” or “Valentinus” all who were martyred. There are a few different legends.
One states that Valentine was a priest who went behind the Emperor’s back and was marrying people against the law as the emperor thought that single men made better soldiers. Another suggests that Valentine was killed for trying to help the Christians escape harsh Roman prisons. A different legend suggests that Valentine sent the first “valentine” greeting card to a young girl he fell in love with and signed his final letter to her “-from your valentine.”
