When and how was Valentine's Day born?

Valentine's Day Hearts Love

The origin of the all-popular Valentine's Day celebrations actually stems from people's beliefs instead of historical facts! Its origin is therefore quite mysterious. Let's go back to the 14th century to try and understand the origin of this popular celebration. At the time, the 14th of February was considered to be a day for lovers in Great Britain: according to beliefs, that was the day the birds would mate. The two Valentines started sending each other love letters! In addition, pope Alexander VI named Valentin de Terni, a martyr priest, as the patron saint of lovers in 1456. Valentine's Day became a non-denominational celebration during the 20th century.
