Valentine’s Day was named after Saint Valentine, a Catholic priest who would marry roman soldiers in secret, as Emperor Claudius II forbid it at the time. The Emperor believed that all soldiers should be completely and utterly committed to Rome, and thus love should play no part in their lives.
Valentine was eventually executed for his crimes against Rome, and legend has it that he cured the blindness of Claudius daughter. Before his execution on February 14th, it is also said that he wrote her a love letter and signed it “from your Valentine.”
How much of this story is true and how much is a myth is hard to say. Whatever the case, the legacy of Saint Valentine has left us with a day on which to celebrate our love for one other, and the flowering of new relationships and fortification of old ones.
