Valentine’s Day is a yearly celebration that celebrates love not just for your partner but for family and friends friends. It isn't just enough to love , but at times expressing it is also vital. Love is more than just saying the three words "I love you". Valentine's day is the special day to express your affection through your actions.

February 14 is commended as the Valentine's Day consistently. This day is also known as Saint Valentine’s Day. On this day, lovers send each other bouquet of flowers, chocolates and beautiful Valentine’s day cards and spend some good time each other.

Valentine's Day is named after a Catholic cleric, known as St. Valentine. During that time, Rome was ruled by Emperor Claudius II Gothicus. Ruler Claudius II Gothicus used to believe that Roman soldiers should just be committed to their country and subsequently, passed another law, forbidding officers from marrying.

Notwithstanding, it is said that Valentine, who was a priest, defied the order of the emperor Claudius and secretly performed Christian weddings for couples, allowing the husbands involved to escape conscription into the pagan army. But at that point, Emperor Claudius II Gothicus discovered the mystery marriage issues and imprisoned St. Valentine for perpetrating crime against him. . He was executed on February 14 in the 270 AD. Hence his death celebrated as Valentine's Day, and its purpose is to celebrate love in all forms.
