Just 45 days into the new year the annual festival of romantic love happens. The origin of Valentine's Day is shrouded in mystery. We discovered that there were actually three Saints called Valentine, all were martyred and no one is sure which of these Saints is the one who gave his name to the 14th February.
It was at the end of the 5th century that Pope Gelasius declared that the 14th February should be St Valentine's Day but it was not until much later that the day became associated with romance.
The earliest known written Valentine was penned by a French nobleman, Charles Duke of Orleans. He was in prison having been captured at the Battle of Agincourt. He was captured in 1415 and imprisoned in the Tower of London where he remained until 1440. It was in 1416 that he wrote his Valentine to his wife who sadly died before the Duke was released. Let us hope your romantic story will have a happier ending.
Moving forward to our modern times, Valentines Day is celebrated in many countries around the world and as well as sending cards it is a time when romantic gifts such as flowers, chocolates or perfume are given to loved ones.
