The History of Valentine’s Day

You might be super enthusiastic and so in love that you’ve already rushed to participate in the contest. If you’re still reading this though, do you know one of the greatest stories regarding Valentine, the Saint who is celebrated on February 14th?

Valentine, a doctor who later became a Catholic priest, lived in Rome in the 3rd century. During that time Emperor Claudius II outlawed marriage for young men. He wanted many soldiers for his army, and his (absurd) reason for outlawing marriages was that single men make better soldiers than the men who have families at home. Priest Valentine seeing the unfair and absolutely ridiculous decree of the Emperor, performed marriages in secret for couples who were in love. He risked his life for doing it and when he was discovered, the Emperor Claudius ordered that Valentine would be imprisoned, then killed. He was martyred on 14 February 270. A couple hundreds of years after his death, February 14th started to be celebrated as the feast day of St. Valentines, the saint patron of love.

So February has been celebrated as the month of romance for a long time. During the Middle Ages, people believed that the middle of February was the beginning of birds mating season, so there’s another reason that Valentine’s Day on February 14th got to be a day of celebrating love and romance. Now that you know all this, you’re a little more prepared to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year. If you’re single though, stay tuned and keep following our Facebook page as we’ll soon have some other opportunities and cool giveaways not involving couples. Whether single or in a relationship, may you learn more about LOVE this season and be filled with joy!

Final note to all the beautiful couples out there: participating in our contest you might be the blessed winner of the $200 romantic dinner! You can share this link with your family and friends, as they might be interested to participate as well. The Beatles sang “all you need is love”… But even when you have it “all”, you’ll probably admit there’s still room for winning a $200 romantic dinner, isn’t that right? 😉 #AppointfixLOVE
