Valentine's Day has been celebrated for centuries to show love and appreciation. One legend of its origin transpired in the third century AD. A Roman priest named Valentine defied Emperor Claudius II's orders to prohibit the marriage of young men by continuing to marry young couples secretly. The Emperor eventually sentenced Valentine to death, and February 14th, the Day of his death, became a celebration of his martyrdom.
Over the centuries, Valentine's Day customs have evolved from simply sending love letters to exchanging cards, flowers, and chocolates.
