stay at home instead of fighting wars. But
at that time there was a kindly priest
named Valentine, he couldn’t agree with the emperor’s decision. When he saw that young couples were truly in love, he married them secretly.
Cupid is the most famous Valentine symbol, who is known as a mischievous, winged child whose arrows signify desires and emotions of love.
