The history of saint valentine's day

Valentine's day started in the time of the Roman Empire, in ancient Rome, February 14th was a holiday to honour Juno. Juno was the queen of the Roman Gods and Goddess. The Romans also knew her as the Goddess of women and marriage. The following day, February 15th, began the feast of Lupercalia.
The lives of young boys and girls were strictly separate. However, one of the customs of the young people was name drawing. One of the eve of the festival of Lupercalia the names of roman girls were written on slips of paper and placed into jars.
Each young man draw a girls name from the jar and would then be partners for the duration of the festival with the girl whom he chose. Sometimes the pairing of the children lasted an entire year and often, they would fall in love and would later marry.

Under the rule of Emperor Claudius- 11, Rome was involved in many bloody and unpopular campaigns. Claudius the cruel was having a midcult time getting soldiers to join his military leagues, he beloved that the reason was that Roman man did not want to leave their loves or families. As result, cloudiest cancelled all marines and engagements in room. The good saint valentine was a priest in Rome in the days of claudius11.
He and saint marius aided the Christine martyrs ands secretly married couples and for this king deed saint valentine was apprehended and dragged before the prefect of Rome, who condemned his to be beaten to death with clubs and to have his head cut off. He suffered martyrdom on the 14th day of February.
At that time it was the custom in Rome, a very ancient custom, indeed, to celebrate in the month of February the Lupercalia, feasts in honour of a heathen God. On these occasions, amidst a variety of pagan ceremonies, the names of young women were placed in a box, from which they were drawn by the men as chance directed.

The pastors of the early Christian church in Rome endeavoured to do away with the pagan element in these feasts by substituting the names of saints for those of maidens.
And as the Lupercalia began about the middle of February, the pastors appear to have chosen saint valentine’s day for the celebration of this new feast .So it seems that the custom of young men choosing maidens for valentines or saint as patrons for the coming year,arose in this way. RANA
