This is the story of Valentine!
Patron Saint of Lovers;
Invoked for Romance
Valentine's story took place long ago! Actually, the story of Valentine involves three or more men with the name Valentine. The modern day celebration of Valentine’s Day is most likely not related to any religious event or celebration. Instead, it is believed that Valentine’s Day was created as a type of copying of an old tale about birds. In Medieval times it was thought that birds chose their mates on February 14th. It appears this “custom” was somehow copied by schoolchildren; boys would pick girls names out of a hat and then the two would connect as special friends on Saint Valentine’s Day. Soon card makers, florists and chocolate manufacturers got in on the action and now Saint Valentine’s Day is a multi-million dollar industry that some men say has “befallen” them, though their lovers would surely disagree with this cynical assessment.
