St. Valentine is the patron saint of lovers and on the 14th of February young men and women declare their feelings to each other. It is interesting to know how this holiday came into being.
 
The story is that Valentine was a Christian who lived in the third century. The Romans Emperor at that time Claudius the second decided that soldiers must not marry, because married soldiers do not make good soldiers, Valentine worked for the Church and one day he helped f soldier to get married. The emperor said that Valentine had to die because he did wrong. In prison Valentine feel in love with the daughter of a man who worked in prison. The day he died, he sent a note, he wrote “your Valentine”.

Hundreds of years ago, women carried lace handkerchiefs. If a woman dropped her handkerchief, a man nearby might pick it up and return it to her. Sometimes she might drop her lace handkerchief on purpose to encourage romance.
