What Are the Legends of Valentine’s Day?
For years, we have celebrated Valentine’s Day, but do we really know what it means or how it started? While we’re not entirely sure how it did, there are actually a few legends on how the occasion originated, and they are listed down below for you to read.
- The first of the three legends took place in ancient Rome during the reign of Emperor Claudius II. During his time, the emperor’s army lacked the number of soldiers and it was slowly becoming evident that they were being outnumbered by their enemies. According to the emperor, he believed that one reason for the lack of soldiers is that they were married and didn’t want to leave behind their wives. As an intervention, Emperor Claudius made engagements and marriages illegal, which came as a big shock to many Romans. Then came a young priest named Valentine who, in secret, conducted weddings for Roman couples. After the emperor found out about this, he had Valentine arrested and beaten to death. After a few years, Valentine became a saint for his bravery and dedication to love.
- The second legend told of a Fr. Valentine, who was also a young priest that offered assistance to persecuted Christians. Valentine helped these Christians escape prison which eventually got him arrested as well. During his imprisonment, he was given miraculous talents by God that allowed him to heal the sick. One of the prison’s keepers who had a blind daughter heard of this and brought her to Valentine in hopes of healing her blindness. Fr. Valentine prayed for the girl and she was then able to see, which made the young priest even more popular. Just moments before he was executed, he was known for writing a farewell letter in which he signed “from your Valentine.”
- The third and the last legend about Valentine’s Day told of a priest who was martyred for refusing to renounce his faith in God. Unlike the first two legends, this one doesn’t talk about the priest’s selfless acts toward his fellow Christians but toward God. According to the legend, Valentine was executed on February 14, a date in which Romans started to celebrate in honor of the martyred priest. Among the three, it is believed that this is the most accurate legend since archaeologists have uncovered an ancient church as well as a catacomb dedicated to a St. Valentine.

How Is Valentine’s Day Celebrated across Different Countries?
Since writing down every single Valentine’s Day tradition would take up all of the space in this article, we will only be including a few of those traditions, those that you may find quite unusual.
- In France—considered as one of the most romantic places in the world—Valentine’s Day is widely celebrated as a day for couples. A common French tradition practiced during this day is the “drawing of love,” which involved single people filling houses that faced one another. Men will then take turns calling out for a match from the house in front. If they didn’t like the woman, they can leave her to look for another one. The unmatched (and infuriated) women would then gather around a bonfire to burn pictures of the men who rejected them while throwing insults at the opposite sex.
- In Wales, instead of celebrating February 14 in honor of St. Valentine, Welsh people honor St. Dwynwen, who is the Welsh patron saint of love on January 25th. As early as the 17th century, it became a common tradition for Welsh people to give our love spoons as a token of affection for the women they loved. These love spoons are carved out of wood and contained highly detailed patterns and symbols that had meanings behind it. The tradition of giving love spoons is still being practiced today, most commonly during weddings and anniversary celebrations.
- In Germany, celebrating Valentine’s Day is also very common among couples, but they celebrate it in a rather unusual way. While most countries have the couple exchanging flowers, chocolates, or greeting cards, German couples exchange pigs instead. The exchange doesn’t have to involve the actual living animal, a figurine or an image of a pig is already sufficient, and according to Germans, the pig is actually symbolic of luck and lust.

Heart and Key Rustic Valentine’s Poster Design
We often see couple jewelries that involve a symbol of a heart and a key, with the former worn by the guy and the latter given to the girl. With this is a cheesy quote that the guy “should” say upon giving the girl’s share of the jewelry, and this quote says, “You hold the key to my heart.” The rustic but awesome poster design above brilliantly illustrates that cheesy gesture by showing an image of a heart and key on top of it.
