Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is celebrated around the world each year on February 14. It is a time when friends and lovers exchange candy, flowers, love notes and greeting cards. The roots of this tradition stem from two sources: the Roman festival of Lupercalia and the sad story of a Christian doctor named Valentine.
