The origins of Valentine’s Day

Have your say

So what is Valentine’s Day?

Every year, on February 14, we celebrate love,vbut why?

One story is that Valentinus was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who had been forbidden to marry.

Another story is that during his imprisonment he healed his daughter through the power of love.

And the final is that he always signed a letter off with ‘Your Valentine’.

So, we may not know the full truth and the myth of this tradition, but we do know that love is way more powerful than anything else.

What are your thoughts on this? What if you’re single?

Why does it only work with couples? We have friends or/and family yet we don’t ask them to be our Valentine’s.
