Traditions behind valentines day
In ancient Rome, there was a Christian Martyr called Valentine, who was executed on orders of the emperor for getting married in secret. Emperor Claudius II did not allow soldiers to get married as he believed that soldiers should only have one love and her name was Rome. However, there was one Christian bishop who would marry people in secret, defying the Emperor’s law. Unfortunately, when Valentine was caught trying to marry his young sweetheart he was jailed.
He was executed on 14th February and he left a love letter behind him for his lover. He signed this letter “From your Valentine.” This is why we still use this phrase today and celebrate it on the 14th of February.
Flowers became part of Valentines Day traditions throughout history. Roses and tulips are actually the 2 most popular flowers sent on valentines day throughout the past 2 centuries.
