Happy Valentine’s Day!

The history of Valentine’s Day and the story of its origin is somewhat of a mystery. We do know that February has long been celebrated as a month of romance and that Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and Ancient Roman tradition. The day of romance we call Valentine’s Day dates back to the 5th century (401 to 500 AD). Each year on February 14th, many people celebrate Valentine’s day by exchanging gestures of love and appreciation with their special “Valentine”, often in the form of cards, candy, jewelry, and flowers.
