Valentine’s day can be romantic and captivating especially when spouses, classmates, co-workers, friends, etc exchange gifts or find themselves in a cozy environment.
The history of Valentine’s Day and the story of its patron saint is shrouded in mystery while legends say, “Valentine’s” day was set aside to remember at least 3 Saint Valentine or Valentinus priest who served during the third century in Rome.
When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he (St. Valentine) went contrary to the law and was beheaded.
However, others claim that it was Saint Valentine of Terni, a bishop, who was the true namesake of the holiday beheaded in Rome.
Some also claim that the Christian church may have decided to place St. Valentine’s feast day in the middle of February to “Christianize” the pagan celebration of “Lupercalia”.
However, in earlier contemporary times it was common for friends and lovers of all social classes to exchange small tokens of affection or handwritten notes, and by 1900 printed cards began to replace written letters due to improvements in printing technology.
Ready-made cards were an easy way for people to express their emotions in a time when direct expression of one’s feelings was discouraged.
As Covid-19 is still lagging around and due to that there has been a halt on reopening of Restaurants, Night clubs, Cinemas, and Beaches many lovers will be wondering how to celebrate this year Valentine’s day.

I suggest you watch “To All the Boys Always and Forever”, “The right one”, “The Map of Tiny Perfect Things” and also “Kissing Booth 3”.
