The 14th February is a date laden with History. There are several legends about this celebration.
The oldest legend goes back to the fertility festivals which took place in Ancient Rome in honor of Lupercus, protector of fields and herds.
In Italy, it is also said that in the 3rd century, a priest named Valentin, celebrated weddings in secret. The latter were in fact banned by the Gothic Emperor Claudius II because he feared that the soldiers would become too attached to women. When the latter learned the existence of these secret unions, Valentine was imprisoned and met the Emperor's blind daughter, Julia. They are said to have had a romantic relationships that the Emperor disliked. The 14th February 269, Valentin was sentenced to death and beheaded. Julia planted an almond tree near Valentine's tomb, the tree has been the symbol of love ever since.
In Great Britain, in the 14th century, the date was proclaimed as the celebration of lovers as it was thought to be the day birds chosen to pair. Charles of Orleans relayed this legend in France in the 15th century. He instituted this practice at the Court of France on his return from the campaign in England: on Valentine's Day, it will now be customary to send a loving message to a beloved.
