There are legends surrounding the history of Valentine’s Day. Did you know that the reason it is celebrated on February 14th is related, according to legend, to the death of Saint Valentine on this day in AD 269? Saint Valentine was said to have gone against the laws of the Roman courts by performing marriages for soldiers and helping persecuted Christians. He was then imprisoned and sentenced to execution. Before his sentence was carried out he cured the blindness of a woman named Julia. She was the daughter of his jailer. He also wrote her a letter before his sentence was carried out and signed it “Your Valentine”.
According to the English historian, John Fox, Saint Valentine was buried in the Church of Praxedes in Rome. It is thought, according to legend, that Julia herself planted a pink-blossomed almond tree near his grave. That tree remains a symbol of their devotion, love and friendship.
It is thought that Saint Valentine wore a purple amethyst ring. This ring was commonly worn by Christian Bishops. It had the image of Cupid carved on it which as we know is a symbol today of love. In those times it was associated with love that was legal in the Roman Empire. Due to the association of the ring and Saint Valentine, the amethyst is the birthstone of February and is thought to attract love.
Under the influence of Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century, Valentine’s Day became associated with romantic love. In England by the 18th-century, it was common for people in love to gift flowers, candy and cards to each other. All of these were expressions of love and devotion. As we know, the most common symbols of love on Valentine’s Day include heart shapes, doves or the figure of the flying Cupid. Handwritten notes expressing one’s love and devotion have become popular as well as greeting cards.
