The History of Valentine's Day
The History of Valentine's Day at the WHS. "...Every February 14th, gifts, candy, loved ones exchange cards and flowers, all in the name of St. Valentine. But who is this Valentine fellow, and why do we celebrate his holiday? Historically, February has long been a month associated with romance, and St. Valentine's Day, as we call it today, contains elements of both Christian and Roman traditions. Its patron saint, however, remains shrouded in a bit of mystery."
