A little background on Valentines Day
Although an ancient story, 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 this law, deified Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. About 200 years later, the 14th of February was proclaimed Saint Valentine's Day. Thus, a ritual of expressing love and admiration began to be celebrated far and wide, and throughout time. This custom even spread throughout Europe. Historians believe around this time, gatherings began where people read love poetry and played games of flirtation.
