Valentine’s Day is named for a Catholic saint named Valentine. It is unclear who Valentine was. One legend is that the Roman empire at one point in time forbade Young Men to marry because it was felt that married men did not make good soldiers. Valentine was a priest who defied Rome by continuing to marry young men to the young ladies whom they loved and was therefore executed. The heart is a symbol of love and Valentine’s day.
