He loves me? He loves me not? That is the question.

Valentine’s Day is an annual celebration that happens every February 14th dedicated to romance, love and friendship in many parts of the world. For many people, Valentine’s Day is a special time to enjoy our loved ones, indulging them with gifts and heart-felt messages to show their love and appreciation for one another. 

This global tradition is believed to have different origins, many of them with religious backgrounds such as Saint Valentine who, in order to spare men from going to war, would secretly marry couples against the emperor’s will. 

Another common legend revolves around Christian martyrs who would famously sign off formal letters with “from your Valentine,” which is thought to be where valentines, or love messages, come from.

In fact, valentines or Valentine’s Day greeting cards, made their way to commercial prominence in the United States in the mid-1800s, depicting Cupid, the Roman god of love along with hearts.
