The Legend of Valentine’s Day

Lupercalia was a Roman celebration of the beginnings of spring that began in February as early as 496BC. Legends say that names were drawn from a box for boys and girls to be boyfriend/girlfriend during the festival. It would even lead to marriage.

Then the Roman Emperor Claudius II banned marriage. He said married men were bad soldiers. Legends say a Priest named Valentine felt the emperor was wrong and performed marriages in secret. The Emperor found out, imprisoned and sentenced Valentine to death. The priest fell in love with the daughter of his jailer. The legend further says that when Valentine was taken to be executed he left a letter to her from “Your Valentine”. Over the years”Your Valentine” became a way for people to say they loved you.

You can say you love someone in a very special and unique way by giving a personalized gift for Gail’s Personalized Gifts.
