A day that simply cannot get more romantic
Butterflies in the stomach, passionate love letters, exquisite bouquets of flowers and dazzling jewelry gifts – Valentine's Day is celebrated by couples in love every year on February 14. While singles would rather erase this day from the calendar, the love birds among us enjoy this day every year with an extra romantic touch. Regardless if it features a dreamy candlelight dinner in a restaurant, a wellness vacation in the mountains or a cozy movie night at home – Valentine's Day has been an established tradition for many years. But why and since when do we celebrate the day of love?
One legend has it that the tradition of celebrating the most romantic day of the year goes back to the ancient Roman priest Valentine, the patron saint of lovers. Back in the 3rd century AD, Valentine married Christian couples despite the prohibition that was imposed at the time and gave the newlyweds flowers from his garden until he was eventually murdered on February 14, 269. As the years went by, February 14 gradually established itself as the day of love and there are now countless customs and traditions of celebrating Valentine's Day around the world.
