We are just a month away from Valentine’s Day… February has long been celebrated as a month of romance and Saint Valentine’s Day, as we know it, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. It occurs every year on the 14th February.
What is the meaning of it and why do we celebrate it?
This day was named after Saint Valentine. According to one legend, an imprisoned Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” greeting himself after he fell in love with a young girl who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter signed “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still being used today.
Valentine greetings were popular as far back as the Middle Ages, although written declarations didn’t appear until after 1400. The oldest known valentine that still exists today was a poem by the Duke of Orleans to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London. It’s now part of the manuscript collection of the British Library in London, England.1
Loving means sharing. Valentine’s Day is a day for sharing our care with our loved ones. In many places around the world, sweets, chocolate, flowers and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of Saint Valentine. Today, many of those same traditions are visible as lovers send bouquets of flowers and chocolates to one another on Valentine’s Day. We might think that Valentine’s Day as a holiday for couples; however, it’s also a day to celebrate the many loves and friendships in our lives.
The heart shape, by a modern definition, is an ideograph used to express the idea of the “heart” in its metaphorical or symbolic sense as the core of emotion, affection, and love.
