HMS Valentine’s Day

HMS Valentine's Day

The month of February is a month of romance and its main holiday is Valentine’s Day. The holiday used to be celebrated by Christians and Romans, but now it is the second most popular card-sending holiday in the year.

There are many legends surrounding St. Valentine, all in the Roman times. One of the legends is about Emperor Claudius II who banned the marriage of young men because he thought it distracted them from the army. St. Valentine continued to help people get married in secret.

Another story suggests that while St. Valentine was in jail, he fell in love with his jailer’s daughter and on the day before his death, he wrote her a letter and signed it, from your Valentine.
