History of Valentine’s Day

This holiday has a very romantic origin story. It is believed that the Christian priest Valentine, who lived in the 3rd century in the city of Terne, located in the province of Umbria in Italy, became the “culprit” of Valentine’s Day.

In particular, in 269, the Roman emperor Claudius II planned to conquer the world, but his army lacked soldiers, for which he blamed family life, which allegedly distracted soldiers from service . In this regard, Claudius II issued a decree according to which soldiers were forbidden to marry throughout their military service.

However, the marriage of the soldiers continued and the young priest Valentine helped them in this. Because of this, the emperor sentenced him to death. While awaiting the execution of the sentence, Valentine falls in love with the blind son of one of the prisoners. With some knowledge of medicine, he was able to cure his blindness. And before the execution, he sent his beloved a farewell letter signed “from your Valentine.”
