Valentine’s Day, a day that you can celebrate several times a year

14 February, we celebrate Valentine’s Day as romance day or couple day each year. We exchange gifts, cards, chocolates, flowers with our special someone. But the original theme of the day is different from the contemporary way of celebration. The emperor Claudius II beheaded a saint, St. Valentine for helping a couple. But the problem is there were a dozen saints with the same name and beheaded as well.  Another interesting thing is Geoffrey Chaucer, the father of English Literature, mentioned about the celebration of St. Valentine’s feast day in his poem “Parliament of Foules,” which has no historical value. The fact is, Chaucer had a trend to describe imaginary things with realistic elements, like date, occurrences, etc. (source)
