In case you are not aware, the celebration of Saint Valentines goes back to the 33rd Century D.C.

According to some versions, Valentine was a Roman priest who challenged Emperor Claudio II´s order to prohibit marriage between young people, as it was thought that single men with no family were better soldiers for battle, as they did not have so much to lose.

The priest believed that it was totally unjust and married these couples in secret, which ended with him being imprisioned and finally martyred and executed on 14th February year 270. His remains are kept in the Basilica of Termi, where couples marry to this day in remembrance of this Saint.

Today, Saint Valentines is celebrated in many ways around the world. In USA and Canada, children exchange greeting cards with their friends and colleagues at school, a tradition which is also carried out in some parts of Spain. In Italy for example they have Saint Valentine Banquets and in Denmark its customary to send pressed white flowers to friends, which they call snowflakes.

In Spain, many couples give each other presents, go out for a romantic meal and spend the evening together, Saint Valentines being a special date in the calendar for many spanish couples.
