All About Valentine’s Day

Did you know? The first Valentine’s Day ever was celebrated in the year 496!

Several legends and myths are going around, but we will never find out what the exact story behind the how and why of the origin of Valentine’s Day. For sure, the Valentine’s Day celebration as we know it became popular through the Legenda Aurea, a book which was composed in the 14th century about Christian holidays and celebrations. There, Geoffrey Chaucer wrote:

“For this was on seynt Volantynys day
Whan euery bryd comyth there to chese his make”

“Because this was on Saint Valentine’s Day
When every bird comes to chess its mate”

Nowadays we celebrate love in general on February 14th , and not only ‘anonymous love’. Lovers, couples and even friends express their love to each other with Valentine’s cards, gifts, and flowers.
