Who was Valentine?
Let’s go back to Rome in the 3rd century AD, where a priest named Valentine rebelled against the orders of Emperor Claudius II of Goth, who decided to ban young lovers from getting married based on the idea that single men without families are better soldiers since they have fewer relationships and affections.

Priest Valentine opposed the emperor’s decree and began holding secret weddings for young couples, becoming the patron saint of lovers. After his death, he was named a saint, and to this day, his name and image continue to be one of the most universally recognized symbols of romantic love.

Why do we celebratelove on February 14?

Claudius II found out and sentenced Saint Valentine to death for disobedience and rebellionon February 14, 269 AD.Centuries later, in 494AD, Pope Gratius I proclaimedthe day of his martyrdom as Valentine’s Day. That is why Valentine’s Day is celebrated every year on this date.

Love is celebrated on other dates around the world

It should be noted that love and friendship are also celebrated on other dates in different parts of the world. For instance, in countries like Finland and Estonia, this celebration is known as “Sobrapäev” and “Ystävän Paiva,” respectively. These are popular dates to ask for someone’s hand in marriage and to get married.

In Uruguay, love is usually celebrated in October, while in Bolivia it is done on September 21, around the time when spring begins in the Southern Hemisphere. In Colombia, the day of love is the third Saturday of September, known since a few years ago as the day of the bride and groom.
