Saint Valentine, revered as the patron saint of love, is celebrated annually on February 14th. Despite historical ambiguity surrounding his identity, he is often associated with acts of compassion and romantic gestures. Legend has it that he defied Emperor Claudius II’s decree prohibiting marriage for young soldiers, secretly marrying couples in defiance of the law. Imprisoned for his actions, Valentine continued to spread love, even reportedly healing the jailer’s daughter and sending her a note signed “Your Valentine” before his execution. Over the centuries, Valentine’s Day has evolved into a celebration of love and affection, marked by the exchange of gifts and tokens of appreciation between loved ones worldwide.
