With Valentine’s Day fast approaching and whether you’re in a relationship or not, it’s a special time of the year to celebrate love in all its forms. The origin of Valentine’s Day has never really been pinpointed but there are several stories. The most popular one is that of St. Valentine during the 3rd century, who was executed on February 14th for illegally marrying Roman soldiers to their wifes. According to the story, Emperor Claudius II realized that single young men were far better soldiers than married men with wives and kids, so he outlawed young men from marrying. The priest St. Valentine, however, secretly married Roman soldiers to their wife's, and when he was discovered, was placed in prison to be executed.
Though this story may be grim, people around the world have been celebrating Valentine’s Day since the 17th century when it became popular in England. People started to give each other Valentine’s cards, letters, and gifts with the iconic symbol of the red heart. Today, the heart is still the most popular symbol of Valentine’s Day, and what better way to decorate your living area than with hearts in different shapes and forms.
