The History of St. Valentine's Day

Celebrated every year around the world on February 14th, St. Valentine's Day, or Valentine's Day, as it is also known, is a holiday observed in the name of love and Saint Valentine. During the time of Emperor Claudius II, a Christian priest named Saint Valentine gave the very first Valentine greeting before being executed. February 14th was later officially chosen as the Valentine's Day by Pope Galasius to "Christianize" the pagan festival of Lupercalia that occurred during the same month. Now, the holiday is associated with love, romance and the exchanging gifts between loved ones. In this WatchMojo.com video, we learn more about St. Valentine's Day.
