Valentines Day falls on February 14th of every year. It doesn’t matter whether 14th February is on a weekday or weekend; Valentines Day is from time immemorial celebrated on that day. It is a day to express your love, emotions and to glorify the spirit of love. This day also admires the martyrdom of a Christian saint, St. Valentine, who is supposed to be the originator of the festival marked with religious influence.
There are many versions of the origination of Valentines Day but the most popular version is about St. Valentine who lived in Rome during the reign of Emperor Claudius II.
Claudius had put a ban on all marriages and engagements in Rome as he wanted more young men to join the army and get involved in bloodshed war. A romantic at heart priest by the name of Valentine defied this unjustified order of Claudius by secretly arranging marriages of young boys and girls. When the Emperor came to know this, Valentine was put behind bars and he was finally executed on February 14, about 270 AD. Valentine was named a saint after his death and the day Feb 14 was considered a day of romance and love.
The Valentines Day in modern day is considered as a festival that has emerged as a gift presenting and popular lover’s festival. The most popular way to celebrate the day is by showing your love to your sweethearts with an exchange of gifts like fresh flowers, chocolates, cards, jewelry etc. In the modern advanced age, exchange of text messages between loved ones has also become a regular norm.
The spirit of love is seen all over & lovers are found thronging parks, restaurants, malls and multiplexes. With Valentine’s Day symbols of roses, hearts, cupids and lovebirds, the markets wear a festive look. Thus the month of February is a month symbolizing pristine love and for all young lovers throughout the world.
The parents in India are thinking Valentine Day as western culture and they are not in a mood to accept this. But in Indian epics lover’s marriage is described as Gandharva Marriage. The marriage of King Dushyanta and Shakuntala was a historically-celebrated example of this class of marriage. Dushyanta gives Shakuntala a royal ring as a sign of their love, promising her that he will come to her. Our Indian parents need not fear by the Lovers Day and their children will definitely select suitable matches.
