Valentine’s Day originated from the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia. The origin of this lovers day goes back as early as 270 A.D, when the Roman emperor created a new law; which banned marriage for all couples. In spite of this, St. Valentine believed there shouldn’t be a ban and married lovers in secret. And so the day became known as St Valentine’s Day. The meaning behind the day is often disregarded, yet it is now known as the day which celebrates love.
All over the world, Valentine’s Day is celebrated with a loved one. The popularity of the day has led to shops overflowing with gifts for the occasion.
