Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day, is celebrated on February 14th annually.

This is not a public holiday, but only celebration of romance and love.

Few early Christian martyrs were named Valentine. The romantization of Valentine’s Day started in 14th century.

The modern cliché Valentine’s Day poem can be found in the selection of English nursery rhymes Gammer Gurton’s Garland (1784):

“The rose is red, the violet’s blue,

The honey’s sweet, and so are you.
Thou art my love and I am thine;
I drew thee to my Valentine:
The lot was cast and then I drew,

And Fortune said it shou’d be you.”

 

Enjoy this day and spend it with your loved ones.
