Why We Misinterprete Valentines Day

What is it about and what is this all about really. Is it a day when someone has to die or is it a day where we really need to celebrate love. I ask myself these questions every valentines day, or perhaps it’s an occult day to remember a god called valentines to which we sacrifice blood for? Oh really, I do sound like I watched so many Valentine’s Day horror movies. We should really explain this to ourselves. It’s really a shame if we turn love into something to shy away from. However with that said I think I got the true meaning of Valentine ’s Day after some research and I think when you read it, you are going to love my valentines day wishes for you.
Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is celebrated annually on February 14. Originating as a Western Christian feast day honoring one or two early saints named Valentinus, Valentine’s Day is recognized as a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and romantic love in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.
Martyrdom stories associated with various Valentines connected to February 14 are presented in martyrologies, including a written account of Saint Valentine of Rome imprisonment for performing weddings for soldiers, who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians persecuted under the Roman Empire. According to legend, during his imprisonment Saint Valentine restored sight to the blind daughter of his judge,and before his execution he wrote her a letter signed “Your Valentine” as a farewell.
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 (known as “valentines”). Valentine’s Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid.
