“Don’t wait until it’s too late to tell someone how much you love them, how much you care for them. Because when they’re gone, no matter how loud you shout and cry, they won’t hear you anymore.”
Valentine’s Day is round the corner and lovers are all set to celebrate the day of love.
Valentine’s Day also well known as Saint Valentine’s Day marks the celebration of one of the most beautiful bonds in the world – LOVE. Yes love, its the purest form and can be for anyone for your parents, partner, children, grandparents and even it can be for your friends.
THE LEGEND OF ST. VALENTINE
The history of Valentine’s Day–and the story of its patron saint–is shrouded in mystery. We do know that February has long been celebrated as a month of romance, and that St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. But who was Saint Valentine, and how did he become associated with this ancient rite?
The Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred. One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.
Other stories suggest that Valentine may have been killed for attempting to help Christians escape harsh Roman prisons, where they were often beaten and tortured. According to one legend, an imprisoned Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” greeting himself after he fell in love with a young girl–possibly his jailor’s daughter–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 in use today. Although the truth behind the Valentine legends is murky, the stories all emphasize his appeal as a sympathetic, heroic and–most importantly–romantic figure. By the Middle Ages, perhaps thanks to this reputation, Valentine would become one of the most popular saints in England and France.
But do you really think lovers need a special day to showcase their love? Answers may vary from person to person but majority of the people plan to confess their love on this day to their beloved ones by gifting them flowers, gifts or greeting cards.
