Valentine's Day is one of the two love holidays of the year (Sweetest day is the second one and it's in October if you're in the Great Lakes Region for a heads up.) It's a day where most men buy their ladies candies, roses, and jewelry to profess their undying love.
A little history about Valentine's Day
It originally started off as a ritual performed by the Romans from February 13th to 15th to avert evil spirits and purify the city, releasing health and fertility. I won't go into the details of what entailed during the ritual, you can do that research yourself. Around the 3rd century, Emperor Claudius II executed 2 men with the name Valentine on February 14th in two different years and eventually the Catholic Church declared February 14th as “St. Valentine's day”.
