Valentine's Day History

February has for some time been a month of romance. It is the month connected with Valentine's Day celebrations. Consistently, the fourteenth day of the month of February has millions over the world giving their their loved ones with candy, flowers, chocolates and other lovely gifts. In numerous countries, eateries and restaurants are believed to be loaded with couples who are enthusiastic to praise their relationship and the delight of their harmony through scrumptious foods. There barely is by all accounts a young fellow or lady who is not quick to benefit as much as possible from the day.

The historical backdrop of Valentine's Day is dark, and further blurred by different whimsical legends. The holiday's foundations are in the old Roman celebration of Lupercalia, a fruitfulness festivity honored every year on February 15. Pope Gelasius I recast this agnostic celebration as a Christian devour day around 496, pronouncing February 14 to be St. Valentine's Day.

History of Valentines Day

Which St. Valentine this early pope expected to respect remains a riddle: as indicated by the Catholic Encyclopedia, there were no less than three early Christian holy people by that name. One was a cleric in Rome, another a religious administrator in Terni, and of a third St. Valentine nothing is known with the exception of that he met his end in Africa. Or maybe incredibly, every one of the three Valentines were said to have been martyred on Feb. 14.

Most researchers trust that the St. Valentine of the holiday was a priest who pulled in the disgrace of Roman ruler Claudius II around 270. At this stage, the authentic finishes and the mythic starts. As indicated by one legend, Claudius II had denied marriage for young fellows, asserting that lone wolves improved officers. Valentine proceeded to subtly perform wedding ceremonies yet was in the long run caught by the Romans and put to death. Another legend has it that Valentine, detained by Claudius, became hopelessly enamored with the girl of his prison guard. Before he was executed, he purportedly sent her a letter marked "from your Valentine." Probably the most conceivable story encompassing St. Valentine is one not centered around Eros (energetic love) but rather on agape (Christian love): he was martyred for declining to revoke his religion.

In 1969, the Catholic Church changed its ritualistic timetable, expelling the devour days of holy people whose verifiable sources were faulty. St. Valentine was one of the setbacks.

It was not until the 14th century that this Christian feast day turned out to be conclusively connected with love. As indicated by UCLA medieval researcher Henry Ansgar Kelly, creator of Chaucer and the Cult of Saint Valentine, it was Chaucer who initially connected St. Valentine's Day with romance.  
In 1381, Chaucer formed a lyric out of appreciation for the engagement between England's Richard II and Anne of Bohemia. Similar to the beautiful custom, Chaucer related the event with a devour day. In "The Parliament of Fowls," the regal engagement, the mating period of winged creatures, and St. Valentine's Day are connected.
