Be My Valentine – Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas & Origins

February has long been celebrated as a month of romance and St Valentine’s Day can be traced to both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. There are many stories of saints named Valentine or Valentinos and their ties to Valentine’s Day but one story about the Patron Saint Valentines is especially compelling and romantic.

You're My Valentine Pillow

Hundreds of years ago there was a Saint by the name of Valentine. He was a noble Saint who wanted to help Christians escape their Roman captors. The Christian prisoners were beaten and treated badly by the Romans. As the story goes, Valentine fell in love with a young girl who came to visit a prisoner. He got caught attempting to help the prisoners and was put to his death, but before he was killed, he allegedly wrote a note to the young girl signed “from your Valentine” – an expression still used today. Even though he died in the middle of February A.D. 270, it wasn’t until the end of the 5th Century that Pope Gelasius declared February 14th St Valentine’s Day.

In France and England February 14th was the beginning of birds mating season which added to the romantic appeal of Valentine’s Day. It’s a day which is celebrated all over the world today and Valentine’s Day notes gained popularity in the middle ages with greetings dating back to the 1400’s. Since then Valentine’s Day has evolved into the worldwide commercial sensation we love today.
