Did you know the very story behind Valentine's Day is about Saint Valentine getting couples married secretly? Remembering him also makes it a very good reason to get married on Valentine's Day. Here is the story of Valentine:
Stories and Mythology Behind the Day
It is believed that King Claudius II of Rome did not allow his people to get married. He believed that soldiers who were not married and did not have any family responsibilities will make a stronger army. Saint Valentine, a priest, saw how unfair the rule was, and he started to get couples married secretly. When Claudius II came to know about him, he ordered his men to put the priest to death. Valentine's Day is a homage to St. Valentine’s sacrifice and the celebration of his determination to help the people who were in love.
Another version of this story is about a prisoner named Valentine in 269 AD, where he wrote a letter to his lover from the prison on 14th February, a day before he was executed. The letter was signed off as ‘Your Valentine’, and it is believed that it prompted the tradition of greeting cards for Valentine's Day.
