Valentine's Day is the day to show your lover how much you love them. The reason Valentine's Day exists is a person named Valentine, and there are two origins of him. Valentine marrying people in secret because there was a ban on marriage is one of them. This act cost him his life. Valentine sending a love letter to a prison officer's daughter is the other one. Since he was helping Christians escape, he died for his actions. He received a holiday named in his honor. It started as a Christian holiday until 1382. After Chaucer recited a poem at a royal feast on February 14, 1383, it became a holiday of romance.
