Love is in the air Hey there, fabulous ladies! Ready to embark on a whimsical journey through the tangled web of Valentine's Day history? Buckle up, because we're about to uncover the romantic escapades that have shaped this love-filled holiday.

Valentine's Day is loved around the world.  It is so cultural important around the world. People want to be loved in couples and it is important to show the meaning of love.

Picture this: ancient Rome, a time when love was in the air, and Cupid was fluttering about with his bow and arrow. Legend has it that Emperor Claudius II outlawed marriage for young soldiers, believing that single men made better warriors. But along came a defiant priest named Valentine. This guy is what the whole day is about. The day associated with a tradition of courtly love. Valentine defied the decree set by Claudius and continued to marry young lovers in secret. Talk about a rebel with a heart of gold! Saint Valentine was persecuted under Rome for doing this act.

Now, let's fast forward to medieval times, where chivalry was the name of the game. Enter Geoffrey Chaucer, the literary heartthrob of his day, who penned romantic verses linking St. Valentine's Day with lovebirds and courtship. Suddenly, Valentine's Day became synonymous with grand gestures of affection and declarations of undying love.

Cupid in Victorian England

Court of love is shown in Charles VI of France at Mantes-le-Jolie. The Royal Court of 1400 is invited to a large festival with a feast, song and dancing. Lovers with a disputed heart are heard at the feast and judge by the crowd.  But wait, there's more! In Victorian England, Cupid's arrow struck once again, this time with elaborate Valentine's Day cards adorned with lace, ribbons, and sentimental poetry. Talk about setting the bar high for modern-day love letters!

And here we are, in the 21st century, where Valentine's Day has evolved into a celebration of love in all its forms. Whether you're flying solo or coupled up, there's no denying the magic of this enchanting holiday.
