That special day is coming for all you sweethearts. That day of innocent love and affection for all ages to enjoy. But did you know that Valentine’s Day goes back all the way to the 5th century? Since the belief that single men made better soldiers, young men in Rome were not allowed to be married. St. Valentine was sentenced to death for performing marriage ceremonies in secret. Later, Pope Gelasius declared that February 14th would be the day to honor St. Valentine for his bravery in helping love triumph.
