St.Valentine's Day has roots in several different legends. One of the earliest popular symbols of the day in Cupid, the Roman good of Love who is represented by the of a young boy with a bow and arrow.
Three hundred years after the death of Jesus Christ, the Roman emperors still demanded that everyone believe in the Roman goods. Valentine, a Christian priest, had been thrown in prison for his teachings. On February 14, Valentine was beheaded. The night before he was executed, he wrote the jailer's daughter a farewell letter signing it "From Your Valentine"
February 14 was also a Roman holiday, held in honour of a goddess. Young men randomly chose the name of a young girl to escort to the festivities.
St. Valentine's Day is now a day for sweethearts. It is the day that you show your friend or loved one that you care.
You can send candy to someone you think is special.
