2. Another popular legend about the origin of Valentine’s Day is the story of a priest named Valentine. In 250, Emperor Decius issued an edict punishing all who did not worship the Emperor.

This edict is aimed at Christians because they worship only God. As a result, many Christians were imprisoned and executed. Among those arrested was the priest Valentine, who was captured in 268.

Mr. Valentine was a wise and virtuous man, so he was trusted and loved by the Romans. Therefore, Emperor Claudius tried to interrogate him to find out and recruit him to deter others but failed.

Enraged, the Emperor ordered Mr. Valentine to be imprisoned. Locked in a prison, Father Valentine was able to tame the prison warden, Asterius, by healing the jailer’s daughter. Appreciated by Father Valentine’s heart, Asterius and his entire family of 46 baptized Christians. Fearing that this would threaten the kingdom, the Roman Emperor ordered the beheading of priest Valentine on February 14, 270 on Flaminius Street.

Father Valentine’s death has moved and is admired among the people and among Christians. Since then, the name Valentine has become a symbol of great love.

Until now, couples still have the tradition of signing with the old phrase “From your Valentine” instead of their name on Valentine’s cards.
