Valentine day is called the feast of Saint Valentine, it is a day whereby Christians celebrate and honour the Martyrdom of Saint Valentine. The day of Valentine is celebrated yearly on February 14, this particular day is a day celebrated allover the world religiously and commercially to show love among each other and also a day of romance among couples or lovebirds.

Valentine, is not just a person but a name answered by numerous early Christians. The Valentines which are celebrated yearly on February 14, are the Valentine of Rome and the Valentine of Terni. Both Valentines where clergies, Valentine of Rome was a priest in Rome while Valentine of Terni was a bishop of Interamna.

Valentine of Rome was martyred in AD 269 and was buried on the Via Flaminia. The Via Flaminia was an ancient road leading from Rome over to the Apennine mountains to Ariminum on the coast of the Adriatic sea. Valentine of Rome was added to the calendar of saints by Pope Gelasius 1 in AD 496.

Valentine of Terni was martyred by Emperor Aurelian in AD 273 and was also buried on the Via Flaminia but in a different location from Valentine of Rome. 

The Feast of Saint Valentine was established by Pope Gelasius 1 on February 14, in AD 496 in honour of Saint Valentine of Rome who died in AD 269.

The day of Valentine became connected with romantic love in the 14th and 15th centuries where courtly love flourished. And since then most people in the world mistook Valentine day for something else. The true meaning of Valentine is to show love with everyone.
