Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, and it is celebrated annually on February 14th. It originated as a Western Christian public feast day, it was to honor one or more early saints named Valentinus, and is a significant celebration in many regions around the world, although it is not celebrated in all countries. For example, in Denmark they write a funny poem and give each other a pressed flower called a snowdrop.

Now it is a Holiday to spend with your loved ones. Kind of like Christmas before when it was created is way different. Now Christmas is about giving and gifts but it actually celebrates Jesus’s birth, so Valentin’s day is the same concept. We don’t have a feast, now it is more like a day for couples and candy is usually handed out.
