Who here knows the true story of Valentine’s Day?

It began in the IIIrd century, when a Roman Emperor, Claudius II, outlawed marriage for young people, believing that single men made better soldiers. Valentinus, a Christian priest, continued marrying young people in secret, contrary to the royal edict. As a result, he was found, arrested, and sentenced to death. During his final days of imprisonment, being a man of learning, he took a student, the daughter of one of his jailers, Julia, who was blind. He showed her the world through his eyes, shared his wisdom, and comforted her with his quiet strength. The day of his death (February 14, 270 AD), has now become synonymous with the expression of love, devotion and affection, around the world, in remembrance of Valentinus. Lovers around the world exchange messages, stories, gestures gifts, moments and experiences, on this very special day. But why should it only be so?
