And while Valentine’s Day has become a day to express love and romance through gifts, the history behind the day goes far beyond supermarkets trying to sell roses and cheesy cards.

If you didn’t know, Valentine’s Day is named after Saint Valentine, a Catholic priest who lived in Rome in the 3rd Century, and it’s believed by historians that the first Valentine’s Day was celebrated in 496 AD, when Pope Gelasius declared 14 February to be a commemoration of St Valentine.

It’s thought that Valentine’s Day originated from a Roman festival called Lupercalia, which was held in mid-February at the start of springtime. Valentine’s Day takes place annually on 14 February, and today we know it as a day for celebrating love and affection.
