Happy Valentine's Day!
Valentine's Day is celebrated worldwide on February 14th. On this day, it is customary to give gifts to loved ones, very often these are gifts in the form of hearts.
There are several versions of the occurrence of this holiday. According to the most common of them, the celebration of this day replaced the ancient Roman festival of female fertility, which was in mid-February.
According to another version, the history of the holiday begins in the late Middle Ages, when the imperious and cruel Roman emperor Claudius II came to the conclusion that a single man, not burdened with his wife and family, would rather fight on the battlefield in honor of Caesar, and forbade men to marry, and women and girls - marry beloved men.
However, the Roman priest Valentine secretly married couples in love, for which he was sentenced to death. While Valentine, who later became known as Saint Valentine, was awaiting death in prison, he fell in love with the jailer's blind daughter. Some say that after that she was healed by a miracle, and some that God heard Valentine's prayers. Valentine was executed on February 14. In parting, he wrote the girl a declaration of love, signing "From your Valentine."
Another legend says that the Roman patrician Valentine, who was a secret Christian, who also converted his servants to the new faith, once performed a wedding ceremony for two of them. On a denunciation or by coincidence, all three were detained by the guards. Valentine, as a representative of the upper class, could escape death, but not his servants.
