Comments Off on Valentine’s Day – a brief history
Valentine’s Day – also known as Saint Valentines Day, is celebrated with the exchange of cards, chocolate, gifts and flowers – but do you know where this tradition began?
It’s said, an early Christian bishop named Valentine was executed on 14 February for performing illegal marriage ceremonies and left a farewell love message signed ‘from your Valentine’!
References to Valentine’s Day can also be found in ancient Roman and Greek Mythology, and the rose was associated with Venus or Aphrodite – the goddess of love.
Today, the red rose is considered most romantic and symbolises love, but pink and orange flowers are also popular gifts.
