Valentine’s Day is one of the biggest holidays celebrated around the globe, and the main objective is all about the love and romance. On this day, Couples exchange beautiful cards and flowers, gifts and also enjoy the romantic dinner with their partners. Although this holiday seems to be the most romantic and loveable holiday of the year, its roots are horrifying. The history shows that Valentine’s Day was not all about the love and romance. However, there are different theories about this Lovers-day of the year.

Part 1. History for Valentine's Day

history of valentines day
One of them is that Ancient Roman people used to have this fertility festival, called Lupercalia when people will make love to their partners. Moreover, it is also told that there was one Roman King who prohibited the marriages during his reign. He had this theory that if people will think about their loved ones they will not be able to perform well in battles. However, one of the soldiers, Saint Valentines got married secretly and due to this reason he was executed. No one exactly knows about the Saint Valentine and history shows that there were more than one St. Valentines at that time. Soon after the reign of Roman, the next king announced the holiday in the memory of the executed St. Valentine. This was the time when Valentine’s Day became the official holiday. However, other nations adopted it over the course of a different period. For example; British adopted this holiday in the early 1700’s when loved one started exchanging letters and beautiful Valentine’s card with each other. Here we are in the modern era, where people don't only exchange cards, gifts, make love, flowers but also have romantic and beautiful dinner.
