Happy Valentine’s Day.
The origins of Valentine’s day go a long way back. It started out as a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saints named Valentinus. Nowadays Valentine’s Day is an official celebration in the Anglican Communion and the Lutheran Church. The association with romantic love started in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. By the 15th century Valentine’s Day had evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards.
