It is a very sentimental unofficial holiday, which is celebrated on the 14th February by those who believe in love and friendship. Boys and girls, husbands and wives, just friends send nice cards to each other with warm greetings on the day. No one can trace origin of this European tradition, but the legend tells us a story of an Italian monk Valentine who helped young people to marry breaching thus the ruler's law. St Valentine was executed but people still remember him and celebrate this saint's day as a day of love. The best presents are small trifles, chocolates and greeting cards.
St. Valentine’s Day is a religious holiday.Do you know,who was St.Valentine? One of the legend says,he was a Christian priest,who had been thrown in prison for his teaching. On February,14 Valentine was beheaded,not only because he performed a miracle-he cured the jailer’s daughter from her blindness the night before he was executed-but he wrote a letter to the girl signing it «From your Valentine ».
Cupid is the most famous Valentine symbol, who is known as a mischievous, winged child whose arrows signify desires and emotions of love. Cupid aims those arrows at Gods and humans, causing them to fall deeply in love. In ancient Greece he was known as Eros, the young son of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. To the Romans he was Cupid, and his mother was Venus.
