A Brief History of Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine's Day imageLoosely based on Christian and ancient Roman traditions, Valentine’s Day is widely accepted as the day for displays of love and romance. On February 14th, most people celebrate with their loved ones throughout the United States and around the world. Lovers exchange candy, flowers and other gifts to show their affections. History shows us that this is done in the name of Saint Valentine; but the real roots of this holiday are still somewhat of a mystery.

The Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus; all of whom were martyred. The most popular legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men were superior soldiers than ones with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret because he believed that Claudius was wrong. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered him to be put to death immediately.

As you can see, using sparklers for Valentine’s Day is becoming more common. They offer a great deal of benefits, and they come with a very small price tag. No matter how you plan to use them, they will be a great addition to your special day.
