Accordingly, we would review some ideal approaches to observe Valentines’ Day with your accomplice during this Pandemic in this blog.
But first, let us continue with our story about why Claudius ordered to execute St. Valentines? There was a time when the soldiers were not allowed to get married. Claudius was the one who set this rule to ensure the soldiers are engaged in their jobs. This rule was not acceptable by the people, and still, they continued to follow the orders. St. Valentine was the one who objected and stood fearlessly for the soldiers. He began to gather these soldiers and helped them to get married without anyone’s notice. But sadly, it got noticed by Claudius, who commanded to capture St. Valentine under the prison and have him executed. The time when St. Valentine spent in jail, he fell in love with a Jailor’s blind daughter. Hence, before his execution, he wrote a letter to his daughter to express his love and signed it as – “Your’s Valentine.” People started to celebrate their love for their loved ones since then after knowing the story. And hence, it is named after St. Valentine and is celebrated as Valentine’s Day.
