Valentine's Day this year falls on Friday, February 14th 2014.
The history of Valentine's Day is shrouded in mystery. But the legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When the Emperor decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine defied the Emperor and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine's actions were discovered, the Emperor ordered that he be put to death.
