Valentine's Day is a special day, where couples meet again and consecrate their love again, where best friends show their loyalty to each other. Each couple or friends celebrate it in their own way, some have a romantic dinner, others go for a walk, many go to the cinema to enjoy a movie. On this day, it is also customary to give a gift to your loved one. Something to remind him of how much you matter to him. Now, why did we celebrate this date, who was Saint Valentine? well ... it all started in the ancient Roman empire, specifically in the third century. The Romans at this time celebrated Eros, the god of love, also known as Cupid. Offerings were left to this deity to find ideal love and other favors. It is believed that Saint Valentine is part of the Christianization of this celebration, considered pagan at that time by Emperor Claudius II, who came to another thanks to the murder of his predecessor for a conspiracy. Claudio, decided to prohibit the celebration of marriages for young people, considering that singles without were better soldiers, since they had fewer ties and sentimental ties. This decision was opposed by a priest named Valentin, who secretly celebrated marriage for young lovers. When the emperor found out what happens behind his back. He sentenced Saint Valentine to death on February 14, 270, alleging disobedience and rebellion. For this reason, Valentine's Day is commemorated every year.
