Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine is celebrated on February 14. It originated as a Western Christian Liturgical feast day honoring one or more early saints named Valentinus and is recognized as a significant cultural and commercial celebration in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.
The day first became associated with romantic love within the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery and sending greeting cards.
Now-a-days in addition to the cards, chocolates and flowers Valentine’s Day is frequently celebrated by going to special events.
