It’s that time of year again, Valentine’s Day. I have always had a strong disliking for this holiday, but I have never learned where it originated from. I always assumed that someone made it up to profit from couples buying each other gifts to celebrate the holiday, but I decided to learn more about its true origins. Apparently, there was a saint named Valentine who was martyred for marrying Christian couples, giving him the image of being a saint of love. It is interesting to learn how holidays are originate and what their significance is.
