WHY VALENTINE’S DAY IS THE CELEBRATION OF LOVE?

 

 

Valentine’s day comes from a historical fact attributed to Saint.Valentine of Terni. Allegedly, he donated a sum of money necessary as a dowry to celebrate the marriage to a poor girl. Without such donation, the poor girl, would have been exposed to the risk of perdition. The generous gift, fruit of love and aimed at love, would therefore have created the tradition of considering the holy bishop Valentino as the protector of lovers. Moreover, in the middle of February the first signs of awakening of nature can be found; in the Middle Ages, especially in France and England, it was believed that on that date the mating of the birds began. This led the day to be considered the day of lovers even more.
