How should you wish someone a happy Valentine's Day? That depends, I guess. How well you express it depends so much on your relationship. Are you writing a letter to a friend, family member, or your lover, girlfriend, husband, or wife? Consider their significance to you and the aspects of your relationship that you value most. Making your own Valentine's Day card is a great way to express a memory, amusing anecdote, or inside joke that has brought you two closer.

If you don't know what to say in a Valentine's Day card or message, start by recalling why this person is significant to you.

Also, truly think about it: What about them makes your heart skip a beat? Why do you value their friendship the most? Why do they rank among your favourites? If in doubt, share a special moment, a humorous incident, or an inside joke that connects you two.

Significance, history and importance of Valentine’s Day

There are many stories behind the origin of Valentine’s Day, and here are a few. According to Britannica, Valentine’s Day has its origin in the Roman festival of Lupercalia which was held in mid-February. The festival celebrated the on-set of spring. In this festival, women were paired with men through lottery. It is believed that Pope Gelasius I replaced this festival with St. Valentine’s Day, and over a period of time from about the 14th century it was celebrated as a day of romance.
Other stories behind this day are based on a person named Valentine. Some people believe that the day is named after St. Valentine of Terni, who was a Bishop. While another story is that Valentine’s Day got its name from the priest Valentine. He once sent a letter to his jailer’s daughter whom he had befriended and signed the letter as “from your Valentine”. He was martyred at around the 270 CE by emperor Claudius II Gothicus. It is possible that the two people were the same, according to Britannica.
According to another popular legend, disobeying the king’s orders, St. Valentine secretly married off couples to save the husbands from war. And so, this day is associated with love.
By the 1500s people started sending formal messages to their loved one on this day, and by late 1700s cards which were been commercially printed were used to celebrate Valentine’s Day. In the United States, the first commercial Valentines were printed by the mid-1800, states Britannica.
It is noted that Valentine’s is popularly symbolised by the Roman God of love, Cupid, along with hearts which symbolise love. It was believed that mating season for birds started in mid-February and so they birds also symbolised this day. Also, chocolates and red roses became traditional gifts for one’s partner.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
