This day was confined to the United States or Western society. Today, however, this day is celebrated in many countries around the world. Many of us celebrate this day but many of us may not know how or where this day came from. If you don’t know, let’s try to find out.
In ancient Rome, February 14 was a holiday in honour of Queen Juno of the Roman gods and goddesses. Juno was believed to be the goddess of women and love. According to some, this was the reason why 14th February was the day of love. Some say that the Roman emperor Claudius banned marriage in the country in 200 AD.
He announced that from today no young man will be able to get married. Just fighting for the youth. According to him, if young people get married, who will fight? A young man protested against this injustice of Emperor Claudius. Whose name is Valentine.
The emperor was furious at the protest of this infinitely brave young man. He was sentenced to death for treason. He was beheaded in the early hours of February 14. This day has been celebrated as Valentine’s Day since then to commemorate the sacrifice of Valentine for love.
However, this is not universally accepted. There is disagreement here too. He was very kind towards the patients. He was very kind to the patients. He used to give bitter medicine mixed with wine, milk or honey as it was difficult for sick people to take medicine. That doctor converted to Christianity. Christianity was not popular in ancient Rome at that time. Believers in this religion were punished.
One day, a Roman jailer brought his blind daughter to Valentine for treatment. Valentine promised to treat her as best he could. While the girl was undergoing treatment, one-day Roman soldiers came and tied up Valentine and took him away. Valentine realized that he would be killed for being a Christian. Valentine was executed by order of the Roman Emperor Claudius on February 14, 270 AD, according to 269 AD.
Earlier, Valentine had written a note to the blind girl saying goodbye. After killing her, the jailer gave the note to the girl. It read, “It’s your Valentine.” Inside the note, the girl saw the surprisingly beautiful colour of the spring yellow trouser flower, because, in the meantime, Valentine’s treatment had restored sight to the girl’s blind eyes. For these feats of love, Pope Gelasius proclaimed February 14, Valentine’s Day, in 496 AD. Since then people have been celebrating this day as Valentine’s Day.
There is another difference of opinion as to the origin of Valentine’s Day. People of this opinion say that sending love messages to loved ones has nothing to do with Valentine.
In ancient times, people believed that February 14 was the wedding day of the birds. The birds lay their eggs in the second week of the second month of the year. Some say that in the late Middle Ages, people believed that the birds began their mating season from this day. Birds look for mates. Seeing the birds, people also choose mates on this day.
Although Valentine’s Day originated in 496 AD, it did not gain much traction in the early days of the world. In the case of the West, the celebration of birthdays, religious festivals is the main issue of enjoyment. That is why they do not refrain from drinking even inside the church. The French government banned Valentine’s Day in 1776, accusing Christianity of being destroyed because of Valentine’s Day. The ruling Puritans in England once banned the day from being celebrated administratively. In Austria, Hungary and Germany, the day was also rejected by the people and the government.
At the present time, the value of Valentine’s Day has increased tremendously. At present in the west, this festival is celebrated in grand style. People in the United Kingdom and the United States spend tens of millions of dollars on this day. People buy cards, flowers, chocolates and other gift items for Valentine’s Day. Approximately 30 million greeting cards are exchanged on this day in the United States.
