Gift idea for Valentine's Day

The history and origin of the lovers' festival

The date of February 14th is known to everyone: Valentine's Day, the day of the lovers. To the delight of couples, this holiday has been a custom since the Middle Ages. The story begins in the Roman Empire, which has preserved the memory of two Valentines who marked the 3rd century AD. The first, named Valentine of Terni, was a martyr bishop. The second, a simple priest, also died tortured on February 14, 270, during the reign of Emperor Claudius II.
The Christian Church waited two centuries before canonizing Valentin de Terni. In 495, Pope Gelasius I made him the patron saint of fiancés and lovers. In fact, it was grafted onto an ancient pagan feast that the Romans had been celebrating for hundreds of years. In fact, on February 15th, polytheistic mythology honoured Lupercus, the god of fertility, every year. These famous lupercales were accompanied by animal sacrifices intended to appease the gods. Etymologically, Lupercus comes from the Latin lupus, the wolf. Legend has it that it was a wolf, maternal, who saved Romulus and Remus, the future founders of Rome.
Indeed, processions were organized at that time to celebrate the lovers. And games of hide-and-seek between bachelors are intended to allow everyone to find their soul mate. 
It is from the 19th century that the practice of exchanging little words of love develops. The "Valentines", these cards bearing sweet words, became the symbols of Valentine's Day. In the United States, it is customary to offer them to all loved ones, in the broadest sense of the term.
