Introduction ● Valentines Day also called Saint Valentines Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine was established by Pope Gelasius I in AD 496 to be celebrated on February 14 in honour of Saint Valentine of Rome who died on that date in AD 269. ● The day became associated with romantic love in the 14th and 15th centuries. This was an era when romanticism and courting flourished. In 18th century it turned into an occasion when couples expressed love by exchanging gifts. The lovers were called “valentines”. ● Although it not an official public holiday in any country it is an official feast day for the Anglican Communion and the Lutheran Church.
