Valentine's Day's complete name is Saint Valentine's Day. It occurs on February 14th of each year. Mostly celebrated in western countries but has not been declared a National Holiday that businesses close. Eastern Orthodox Church celebrate this day on July 6th or July 30th in honor of the Roman presbyter Saint Valentine and the later date in honor of Hieromartyr Valentine, the Bishop of Interamna.

Saint Valentine's Day started out as a day of worship for early Christian Saint named Valentinus. As it goes Saint Valentinus was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry & for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire. Legend tells that during his incarceration he fell for Asterius's (his jailer) daughter and before being executed he wrote "from your Valentine" as his goodbye message to her.

Valentine's Day first became associated with Romance & Love in the circle of Georffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of "courtly love" flourished. It was only in the 15th century that lovers expressed their love to each other by way of giving flowers, gifts & greeting cards.

Most common symbols of love used today to express Valentine's Day are heart-shaped articles, white doves & darling cupids.
