I know that now Valentine’s Day is history until next year, but I have just read a great history of how Valentine’s Day came to be.

Saint ValentineIt is not exactly known why the 14th of February is known as Valentine’s Day or if the noble Valentine really had any relation to this day. The history of Valentine’s Day is impossible to be obtained from any archive and the veil of centuries gone by has made the origin behind this day more difficult to trace. It is only some legends that are our source for the history of Valentine’s Day.

The best concise history that I have seen.
