Each year on February 14, many people exchange cards, candy, gifts or flowers with their special “valentine.” The day of romance we call Valentine's Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century, but has origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia (source: History Channel).
Be honest, did you know Valentine’s Day has a Christian connection? Nope, I didn't either! I thought it was a made up holiday where men try to make up for all the wrong we’ve done throughout the year. What other day do we spend unbelievable amounts of money on flowers? What other day is okay to bring your sweetheart a huge box of chocolates and expect her to eat every bite? I don’t think the Bible relates cards, candy, gifts, and flowers to love. Sorry History Channel. The Bible in fact, describes love completely different.
