Valentine’s Day History & Gifts For Your Man At Welke’s

Posted by

There is a very prevalent thought that Valentine’s Day is a holiday that was made up by greeting card companies, florists and candymakers. While most people think this tends to be a more common opinion of those who are single, many people who are in relationships also tend to think the same. While this thought is widely spread, this actually isn’t the case. Let’s talk about how Valentine’s Day came to be.

Starting from the beginning…

The idea of Valentine’s Day began a very long time ago. Starting in ancient Rome, the Festival of Lupercalia, which was a fertility celebration held in February. Around 496, Pope Gelasius I decided to transform this Pagan festival into a Christian feast day. Also in Rome, Saint Valentine was being imprisoned because he had been performing wedding ceremonies for soldiers who were not allowed to be wed. He was then sentenced to be executed. However, before he died, he wrote a letter to the daughter of his jailer, which he signed “Your Valentine”. Later on in the mid-1800s, the holiday began being observed in the United States in reference to the famous saint.

Valentine’s Day Today

In today’s world, Valentine’s Day is observed by many all over the world. People send their loved ones candy, flowers, cards and more to show them how much they are adored. When it comes to buying gifts for a lady on Valentine’s Day, men tend to have it pretty easy. A beautiful bouquet of roses and a nice dinner will make her heart soar. However, when it comes to buying a V-Day gift for a man, this isn’t quite as easy.
