What is the significance of Valentine day?

We all know that Valentine’s week has started, and are excited and have a lot of plans on how to celebrate this day. All we know about Valentine’s Day is red color, love, flowers, candles and etc. But do we really know the significance of the day? What is the origin of Valentine’s Day customs and symbols? Valentine’s Day which is also called as also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine. Though hearts and roses are red, retailers and business owners see the green of MONEY when it comes to celebrating the holiday. But all of us forget about the real reason behind the day and also forget about the facts about this supreme day! All we know is Valentine’s Day is the celebration of love. It is the day on which lovers express their love for their companion through chocolates, flowers, gifts, cards and etc. Whenever we think of Valentine’s Day, we often think of red roses, chocolates in heart- shaped boxes, and Cupid flying around shooting arrows at dreamy-eyed lovers. But there are very few who know how the Day originated but today after the completion of the article you would know the real reason behind the same.

This day actually originated, as the credit for the link between Valentine’s Day and lovers goes to Geoffrey Chaucer.  Chaucer is  known as the architect of Saint Valentine’s Day. The earliest description of the tradition occurs in his “Parliament of Fouls” which was composed around 1380 and is considered as the finest occasional poem in the English language. Since then St. Valentine’s Day has been associated with love. While in prison, for refusing to give up Christianity, Valentine fell in love with the jailer’s daughter who visited him during his confinement. Before being led out to his execution, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, signing it ‘From your Valentine,’ an expression that is still in use. Gradually, February 14 became the date for exchanging love messages and St. Valentine became the patron saint of lovers. At many places Valentine’s day is considered to be a holiday. Christians were happier with the idea of a holiday (Valentine’s) honoring the saint of romantic causes than with one recognizing a pagan festival. The true origin of Valentine’s Day and its symbols are not rooted in the worship of god so it has no Biblical basis though. But this day will always be cherished by the people in love and will be celebrated with the utmost joy and dedication of the day to their loved ones like always.
