St. Valentine was a martyred Roman Saint who had initiated the noble drive of getting those Christian soldiers married who were forbidden to do so due to some certain religious and social reasons. For doing so, he was persecuted and incarcerated by the Roman Empire. It is believed that, during his imprisonment, he had healed the daughter of his jailer and subsequently he fell in love with her.  Before his execution in February mid around 270 AD, he wrote her a letter stating “from your valentine” as an adieu. So, many people believe that Valentine’s Day is being celebrated on 14th day of February every year to commemorate the memory of Valentine’s death or burial. Because of his devotion to love and affection in human relationship, this day of 14th February has been marked the Day of Lovers.
