Valentine’s Day happens every year on February 14, and is more than just a day to show that you like a cute boy or pretty girl. There are different legends that have floated around for generations, but almost all of them talk about St. Valentine, but just who was this person? One legend claims that St. Valentine was a Catholic Priest who secretly married young couples when they were not allowed to get married. Young soldiers were not allowed to marry the girl they loved because Roman Emperor Claudius II said it would make them weak. Along with the history of this special day, there are also lots of fun facts about Valentine’s Day that you may not know. For instance, did you know that most of the flowers that are bought on this day are bought by men? Or, did you realize that there are 189 million roses sold in the United States every year for this day; that is a lot of roses!
