Excellent St. Valentine’s Day Wallpapers
St. Valentines Day is the best day for celebrating love. It’s an annual commemoration held on February 14.
There are a lot of different legends about appearance of this holiday.
There were several priests who were martyred. Many Christian martyrs named Valentine. It was a day of remembrance. Initially, there was no romantic background with regards to this date. For the first time day began to be associated with romance in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. This holiday was removed from General Roman Calendar and became a local or national celebration.
In Legent Aurelia the Early Medieval acts of Saint Valentine were summarised. Due to this version St. Valentine was persecuted as a Christian by Roman Emperor Claudius II. The Emperor questioned him personally and was very impressed, and even offered Valentine to take Roman religion (paganism), and he in turn would have mercy on Saint Valentine. The priest rejected the proposal and in turn tried to convert Claudius to Christianity. Because of this, he was executed. Before his execution a miracle happened, Saint Valentine healed the jailer’s daughter.
But still, this Legent Aurelia did not bind the Valentine’s Day with romantic relationship and sentimental love.
This correspondence was conducted in modern times.
According to this new legend, St. Valentine was a priest who violated the written law of the Roman Emperor Claudius II. The Emperor wanted to create a strong, powerful and tremendous army. He believed that married men can not become good soldiers. Therefore, all young men were forbidden to marry. A priest secretly conducted the wedding ceremony for young man. When Claudius found out about what was happening, a priest was imprisoned.
There is the complement to The Golden Legend, although it has no historical background.
Before his execution, the bishop, St. Valentine wrote himself the first “valentine” and sent it to a young girl, likely his beloved. Maybe it was the jailer’s daughter, whom he befriended and whom he healed. The note was a sign “From your Valentine”.
Nowadays, millions of people celebrating Valentine’s day greeting each other, showing their feelings, expressing love, making proposals to their loving ones. They present little inexpensive symbolic gifts to their second parts. People give each other some flowers, souvenirs, sweets, and also sending greeting cards called “valentines”.The symbols of this holiday are doves, winged Cupids, roses, hearts.
