Reading the history of the holiday.
This is a sad story about love. Now let’s read the text about it
There is a beautiful legend behind St. Valentine’s Day. Saint Valentine lived in Rome in the third century AD . At that time the Emperor of Rome was Claudius. He wasn’t very popular because he was trying to get more and more people for his army. The men didn’t want to go to the army and Claudius thought that it was because they didn’t want to leave their wives and children.”If they don’t get married, they’ll join the army,” he thought and passed a law which banned marriage.
Valentine was a Christian priest who didn’t like the new law. He secretly married people who were in love. One night the emperor’s soldiers caught him and put him in prison. Valentine was going to die.
Many young people felt sorry for Valentine and visited him in prison. One of them was the daughter of a prison guard. On the day of his execution Valentine wrote a note to her and signed it “Love from your Valentine “. This was on 14 February 269 AD.
Since then 14 February has been the Day of Love, when people send love letters and presents to each other. They don’t sign the cards with their names , but write “Guess Who” or “Your Valentine”
