Valentine's Day is a Christian celebration known as the feast day of Saint Valentine signifying the celebration of love and affection held annually on February 14th.

The custom of sending cards, flowers, chocolates and other gifts originated in the UK. The celebration of Saint Valentine did not have any romantic connotations until Chaucer's poetry about 'Valentines' in the 14th century.
