The story of Valentine's Day
What is Valentine's Day and where does it come from?
Every year on February 14, everyone celebrates this day by sending love messages to each other. Couples send previously personalized cards or flowers.
Valentine's Day as we know it seems to come from lupercalia. It was a feast celebrated every year in Rome between February 13 and 15. It was for them the occasion of a ritual of expiation of the faults committed against the gods. We clean the houses from top to bottom and put salt and wheat on the floor of the whole house.
 
How Valentine's Day Developed.
This celebration did not begin following the execution of the priest Valentin. It was only 200 years after February 14 to be proclaimed Valentine's Day.
The poet (Chaucer) of the Middle Ages was the first man to associate Valentine's Day with sincere love. Cella was the beginning of the tradition of love, a ritual showing love and admiration. Most often in secret.
This habit has happened in Europe and stories have come about of a high court where female judges ask themselves questions related to love on February 14 every year.
