Unique Wishes For Saint Valentine’s day

I’m a snowman falling in love with your sun and melting …

Every inch of my body searches for your presence. Come here now.

My first thought when I wake up, and the last before I go to sleep is you. I miss you.

I’m your wheel chain. You will arrive at happiness a little slower, but for sure.

You are my constant love affair, so not all cellphone cards are enough to move the threads of my heart.

Come on right now, I need you. I cannot lift the moonlight, the stars and the sun that our love has put into my heart on my own!

The love is to have all the stars and you want only one, to have the ocean and you want one drop, to have the whole world and you only want that. You!

My love, I write your name everywhere. Even in the snow to warm up.

Love is like burnt iron. If you touch it, the pain will go away, but the scar will stay there forever!

The priest who testified about his faith and became a patron of the lovers

February 14, the day of love, is rooted in the celebration of Valentine’s Day, a Catholic priest who testified to his faith on the same date, 270 AD. in the persecutions of Emperor Claudius.

Valentine was sentenced to death for marrying couples, thus spreading and consolidating the Christian faith.

One legend has it that while Valentin was in prison, refusing to renounce his faith, he fell in love with his blind daughter-in-law, to which he even sent a letter with the signature: With love from your Valentine.

The Catholic Church later recognized Valentine as a Saint who became a patron of the lovers.

The feast was set for February 14th, almost coinciding (February 15th) and replacing a pagan, centuries-long pagan fertility ceremony from the pre-Christ era. As time went on, the celebration passed from Italy to Europe and from Britain to America.

Another legend says that while Valentin was in prison, refusing to renounce his faith, he fell in love with his blind daughter-in-law, to whom he even sent a letter with the signature: With love from your Valentine.

It started as a violent celebration of Roman times for wolves

Valentine’s Day is rooted in antiquity and specifically in the Roman Empire. It was called Lupercalia (from the word wolf) and it was celebrated in mid-February, when, according to Plutarch, many noble young people were circling the city naked and beating women who were pregnant or having difficulty with childbirth in order to help them. They then sacrificed two goats and a dog and smeared them with animal blood.

The terrible end of many Valentines

Saint Valentine was sanctified by the Roman Catholic Church as a patron of love, new people and happy marriages. But its story is quite dark, as many Valentines in the Roman Empire were executed or martyred in the name of Christianity.

At least two had been executed in Claudius II’s empire on 14 February for different reasons. The first because he married a couple despite the marriage ban in Rome and the second in Terni because he was a spiritual leader and was said to have healed a blind man.

A third with the same name is believed to have been martyred in South Africa. About 200 years later, in the 5th century AD. then Pope Gelasius abolished the Lupercalia celebration and replaced the celebration of St. Valentine.

Bloody Valentine’s Day

February 14 has been recorded as one of the bloodiest dates in the modern day, with the Valentine’s Day massacre in Chicago in 1929 being the most striking example of modern times, control of the area.
