Every year on February 14 is Valentine’s Day. In Germany and many other countries around the world, flowers and chocolates are given away on this date, affection is expressed, and people even get married. Malicious tongues claim that Valentine’s Day is an invention of florists and chocolate manufacturers, but the custom goes back many hundreds of years.
There are some myths about the origination of Valentine’s Day but the most mentioned story is the celebration of about Saint Valentius. Saint Valentius was a man who loved flowers and performed weddings to soldiers who were not allowed to marry, but he was imprisoned for this. He wrote many letters to the daughter of his jailer with the words “From your Valentine” before he was executed. He was buried on the 14th of February. This day was not associated with romantic love and gifts for the soulmate in the middle age. Only since the 1700s the Valentine’s Day is celebrated like today.
