Every year, on the fourteenth of February, millions of people around the world give their loved ones candy, flowers, postcards and other delicious gifts. They decorate their house with flags, garlands, and balls. The reason for this is a kind cleric called Valentin, who died more than a thousand years ago. This day, February 14, was a day for all lovers, and Valentine became his patron saint. With the advent of Christianity, this day became known as Valentine’s Day.
It is a holiday of romantic love. The most common symbols of Valentine’s Day are the heart, especially in red and pink tones, as well as photos or models of Cupid. Cupid is usually portrayed as a small winged figure with a bow and arrow. In mythology, he uses his arrow to hit people’s hearts.
