Did you know there is more than one Saint named Valentine or Valentinus. The most popular of course is that of the Valentine who married young lovers when Emperor Claudius II outlawed marriage thinking that unmarried young men made better soldiers. Other stories tell of the Valentine who fell in love while in prison with the jailors daughter and sent her the first note signed "From your Valentine" or that of the Valentine who rescued Christians from torturous Roman prisons. No matter the history it has become a day to tell your most precious "I love you".
