Valentine's Day, also called Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is celebrated on February 14th every year. It originated as a festival of Western Christianity to commemorate Saint Valentine, the Christian martyr. In many parts of the world, Valentine's Day is considered an important cultural, religious and commercial romantic and love celebration.
Valentine's Day is named after Saint Valentine, who is generally believed to be a Catholic priest from Rome in the third century AD. There are many stories about Saint Valentine, and over time, these stories developed into the legends we know today.
The Legend of "Valentine" in Ancient Rome
The most famous saying is that in the third century, Claudius II, the emperor of the Roman Empire, in order to enrich his army, ordered all single male citizens to join the army and not to marry. The Catholic priest named Valentine ignored the prohibition and secretly marry these soldiers. As a result, he was arrested by soldiers and hanged on February 14, 269. In order to commemorate Valentine's bravery, people set February 14 as the anniversary of Valentine's day.
The second legend says that Valentine was an early Christian. Before Constantine the Great allowed people to have the freedom to believe in Christianity, the Roman Empire persecuted Christians. Therefore, believing in Christianity in the empire meant danger and even the death penalty. He was imprisoned in order to cover other martyrs and expose his identity. In prison, he cured the blind eyes of the warden's daughter. On the morning of Valentine's execution, he wrote an affectionate farewell letter to the warden's daughter. The signature of the letter is: "From Your Valentine". The girl who saw the light again planted a red-flowered apricot tree in front of his tomb to entrust her feelings. This day is February 14.
The Legend of "Lupercalia" in Ancient Rome
The custom of celebrating Valentine's Day in ancient times may be related to the Lupercalia in ancient Rome or the mating season of birds.
It is said that ancient Rome held a grand ceremony every February 14th to celebrate the Lupercalia. Lupercalia is actually a celebration of the coming spring. Later, Lupercalia and Valentine's Day were celebrated together.
At the end of the fifth century AD, Pope Gelasius I abolished Lupercalia, and designated February 14 as Saint Valentine's Day. Since about the 14th century, this day has been celebrated as a romantic day.
