Cheers to Saint Valentine's Day!!!!!!

Today, Saint Valentine's Day is associated with romantic love, greeting cards, beautiful flowers, doves and the figure of the winged Cupid...... The day is named after one early Christian martyr Valentine.

As the legend has it, during the days of his imprisonment, Valentine fell in love with the blind daughter of his jailer. Her blindness was cured by Valentine's magical love and before he was taken to his death, he signed a short message to her, "From your Valentine." This is how it started! Men used to send handwritten messages,containing Valentine's name to ones they admired. The first Valentine card was sent in 1415 by Charles, duke of Orleans, to his wife when he was imprisoned in the Tower of London.
