Valentine's Day Facts

The origins of Saint Valentine's Day are unclear as there were many Christian martyrs called Valentine.

Whether fact or fiction the legend of the first Valentine card is both sad and happy.

Saint Valentine was possibly based on a priest who was to be executed for his Christian beliefs. Whilst he was in jail he cured the jailers daughter of her blindness and the two became close friends.

On February 14th, the day of his execution, a note he had written was found addressed to the jailers daughter he had signed it, 'From your Valentine'.
