Happy Valentine’s Day 2022 / Wishes, Status, History, Origin & Poems

Happy Valentine’s Day has its own history. Saint Valentine’s Day was a feast day in the Catholic religion, added to the liturgical calendar around 500 AD. (Thanks, Pope Gelasius!) The day was commemorated for martyred saints named—you guessed it, Valentine. Differing legends celebrate three different saints called Valentine or Valentinus.

There were conflicting reports of the Saint Valentine Day story; the feast day was removed from the Christian liturgical calendar in 1969.

According to legend, the priest signed a letter “from your Valentine” to his jailer’s daughter, by some accounts, healed from blindness. Other accounts hold that it was St. Valentine of Terni, a bishop, for whom the holiday was named, though it is possible the two saints were actually one person. Another common legend states that St. Valentine defied the emperor’s orders and secretly married couples to spare the husbands from war. It can be a reason that his feast day is associated with love.

Valentine’s Day is a fixed day on the calendar, and the ancient Roman calendar included a mid-February holiday even before St. Valentine’s time. That holiday (perhaps the origin of Valentine’s Day), called Lupercalia, celebrated fruitfulness and may have included a ritual in which men and women were paired off by choosing names from a jar.

Valentine’s Day History

In Ancient Greece, people observed a mid-winter celebration for the marriage of the god Zeus and the goddess Hera. Some historian’s spectacle of these traditions may have prejudiced the way we now celebrate February 14.

The first Valentine’s Day Card dates to 1415 when the Duke of Orleans sent a card to his wife while he was a prisoner in the Tower of London. In the United States, Valentine’s Day cards didn’t gain popularity until the Revolutionary War, when people took up the habit of writing handwritten notes to their beloveds. In the 1900s, cards were mass-produced for the holiday.

Although gaining global popularity, Happy Valentine’s Day is still not widely celebrated in countries like Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia as well as many Muslim countries. In most of those countries, the holiday contradicts facets of their religion.

However, some countries resist Valentine’s Day for political reasons. In India, some conventional political parties oppose Valentine’s Day because they believe the holiday promotes Western values.
