About Valentines Day

Across the world people every year on February 14 are celebrating Valentines Day as a lover's day. If we go back into history about the importance of Valentine's Day, on February 14, we celebrate Saint Valentine's Day usually by the way of exchanging cards, sweets. Lingerie, flowers or jewelry. We are following a Christian and ancient Roman tradition. By now, the Catholic Church recognizes three Saints by name of Valentine or Valentinus.

According to the first legend to the background of the celebration of Valentine's day is that during the 3rd century a priest by the name of Valentine, under Claudius II in Rome, secretly disobeyed the law. Claudius had come to believe that a single solder was a better than a married young man and so decided to outlaw marriage in order to have plenty young strongmen with no wive at his disposal. Valentine, the priest, did not obey this law and continued to celebrate the holy bond of marriage for young couples in secrecy. According to second legend believes that Valentine was a prisoner who fell in love with a young women who came to see him often. It is believed that she was his jailor's daughter. Before his sudden death, he wrote her a love letter signed with 'Your Valentine'. Therefore, the phrase 'Be my Valentine'.

Valentine's Day is celebrated in United States of America, Canada, Mexico, France, Australia and the UK. The oldest known Valentine's card can be viewed in the British Museum. Valentine's Day became official Catholic Holiday in the year 496 or 498 AD. Pope Gelasius declared the February 14 to be Valentine's Day. The oldest known and remembered Valentine's poem is from Charles, Duke of Orleans to his wife in 1415 that he was imprisoned in the Tower of London. It is part of a manuscript collection of the British Library in London. After some years, King Henry V is supposed to have hired the writer John Lydgate to compose a Valentine's letter to Catherine of Kalois. In Great Britain, it was around the 17th century that Valentine's Day became a celebrated Holiday. By the middle of the 18th century, it was common for all social classes to exchange small gifts or handwritten notes with lovers, loved ones and friends. By the end of the 18th Century, printed Valentine's cards were available.

In United States, people started celebrating Valentine's Day in the early 1700's by exchanging Valentine's notes. The Greeting Card Association announced that Valentine's Day is the second best selling card, sending day with one billion cards sold per year. In tune with the changed global scenario, we cannot stop the influence on youngsters of western influence and at the same time, the whole world is appreciating our Indian Culture, our life styles and marriage system. We are of the opinion that there is nothing wrong in celebrating a Valentine's Day as long as Indian traditional are followed.

In February 2010, a video that appeared on YouTube which showed a man being left red-faced after his girlfriend rejected his Valentines marriage proposal in front of thousands of sports fans, has been revealed to be a hoax.
