Many such questions are going in your mind right now. And therefore, In this blog, I will try to help you out with all your question’s answer.
The Valentine’s day we celebrate today was started with an old story from the Roman Empire.
So let’s get a search into the story mode:
During the period 270 CE, the time was of the Roman empire, and the Emperor was Claudius ll Gothicus. He head image of the cruel Emperor during those times. The people of the Kingdom were not so happy with their Emperor. The one reason for unhappiness was the rule which the Emperor forced to implement. And the law was that nobody could have a marriage. The logic behind this rule was When the Emperor surveyed in his Kingdom. He came across that the ones who are married are less stronger than the unmarried one. That shows if the Emperor wants to build a strong army, he must stop the marriage system in his Kingdom.
But this logic was nowhere satisfying the people of the kingdoms. And thus, the name Saint Valentine came across. He was a saint of the Kingdom, who felt this logic and rule wrong. He believed that a married person who has Love with him could be stronger than the unmarried person. Therefore, he went against the law of the Emperor and practiced marriage system for many of the Kingdom’s people.
When Emperor Claudius II gets to know about this thing, he gave the punishment of hanging to the death to Saint Valentine.
When Saint Valentine was in jail spending his days, the Jailer told him about his daughter’s blindness. He asked Jailer to bring his daughter to him, and he will heal the blindness of his daughter.
When the Jailer brought his daughter in jail, Saint Valentine touched her eyes, and she got the new way to live a life because she got her vision back for the rest of her life. There at the moment. The Daughter of the Jailer and Sait Valentine felt in Love with each other.
After that day, The Love of Valentine’s always used to come and meet him daily. And Valentine uses to spread all the Love he had, with her and with others to keep the Love alive in humans.
As the days passed, finally, the day arose when Saint Valentine was going to hang. He wrote a letter to his Love with his name on it “From your Valentine.” The date of the day was the 14th of February. Thus, this day is celebrated as the Loveday to keep his faith alive after his martyred.
