Valentine’s Day is an important day for many couples. They sit around for weeks in advance trying to think of the perfect gift to get for their significant other.

Making your special someone a gift for Valentine’s Day is something that is becoming more and more popular. Valentine’s Day is a holiday that has been celebrated in some form or another for literally thousands of years. The ancient Romans had a day called the Feast of Lupercalia which they celebrated on the same day we celebrate Valentine’s Day – February 14. This feast was held in honor of Juno, which was the queen of the Roman goddesses and gods. She was also the goddess of marriage and women. Many believe this tradition to date all the way back to 270 AD when Claudius II reigned over the Roman Empire. Claudius tried to prevent his men from marrying during wartime because he thought it would interfere with their duties as a soldier. But a Bishop at the time, by the name of Valentine, would perform secret marriage ceremonies for soldiers against the wishes of Claudius. Valentine was eventually taken to prison and executed on February 14 per the orders of Claudius. While he was in jail, he wrote a love note to the daughter of one of the jailors and signed it “From your Valentine,” which is where we get much of our tradition today for this romantic holiday.

 

Valentine’s Day is celebrated in other parts of the world besides just the United States, too. In fact, it is a big holiday in the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Denmark, Australia, Canada and even Mexico. In the Italian city of Verona, the setting for Romeo and Juliet, one of the most famous and recognized Shakespeare plays, there are about 1,000 letters addressed to Juliet each year that go unclaimed.

 

This year, about 150 million Valentine’s Day cards will be exchanged between lovers, children and moms, classmates and other special people that are in our lives. Many of these people will do something extra besides just buying a greeting card.
