Valentine's Day
The history of Valentine's Day is far from clear and is surrounded by various fanciful legends.

The day started as the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia, a fertility celebration commemorated annually on February 15. Pope Gelasius I recast this pagan festival as a Christian feast day circa 496, declaring February 14 to be St. Valentine's Day.  It was not until the 14th century that this Christian feast day became definitively associated with love.

Whatever your thoughts Valentine's is now fully associated with romance and it is the ideal day to show your love for your partner.
Many an argument has started as a result of a Valentine's Day been forgotten or not marked by one of the relationship partners.
