      from my valentines hub..."History of valentines day

      The history of Valentine’s Day or Saint Valentines Day has its’ origins in legend.

      The holiday has its roots in the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalis/Lupercalia, a fertility celebration commemorated annually on February 15.

      Apparently the Valentine was a Roman bishop who performed secret marriages against the wishes of the Roman Emperor Claudius II around the year 270.

      He was eventually discovered and was executed for defying the Emperor. That’s roughly how he became a Saint. Read more about it on this link"

      That part, the history part I get. But the cards, chocolates and flowers, etc...

      In my opinion, it's just a hallmark holiday that companies, corporations jump on in order to make money.

      You will read all sorts of stuff about St Valentine...

      but basically, the truth is, some chick somewhere had a hankering for a box a chocolate about 100 years ago, and her dorky boyfriend ran out in a February snowstorm to get it for her.

      That man's name was Sylvester Hallmark, and after the frostbite wore off, he started a greeting card business
