Every February 14 is celebrated in several countries of the world with great enthusiasm and joy on Valentine's Day. A very special day for many, where the importance of love is highlighted and, despite the belief of its commercial origin, comes from much earlier. Specifically from the third century in Rome and the death of Valentine, a priest sentenced for secretly celebrating marriages of young lovers.
This date, has adopted different names, Valentine's Day, Valentine's Day or Day of love and friendship, but what is the origin of this celebration so particular?
This festivity, assimilated by the Catholic Church, dates back to the third century in Rome, where a priest named Valentin opposed the order of Emperor Claudius II, who decided to prohibit the celebration of marriages for young people, considering that singles without family were better soldiers, since they had less ties and sentimental ties.
Valentin, opposed to the decree of the emperor, began to secretly celebrate marriages for young lovers (hence it became popular that Valentine is the patron of lovers). Upon learning, Claudio II sentenced San Valentin to death on February 14, 270, alleging disobedience and rebellion. For this reason, it is commemorated every year on Valentine's Day.
In addition, as a curiosity, regarding the commercialization of this celebration, the first review that exists is the one pointed out by the American Esther A. Howland as the precursor of the sale of gift cards with romantic motifs and drawings of lovers that she devised and made to mid-1840s. Products that were sold for a few cents in the bookstore that his father ran in Worcester (Massachusetts) and which became a success.
This February 14 is celebrated in many European countries (Spain, Austria, Belgium or France, among others) as the international day of lovers, however, not everyone celebrates Valentine's Day the same day. Even in some places the meaning changes.
