Valentine day all over the world is considered as the day for Lovers, in which they express their love for one another by exchanging sentimental gifts each year this day falls on February 14th. Today this day is celebrated around the world mostly in the west although it remains a working day. But the true essence of valentines is still to be discovered.
The tradition of valentine day started in during the Roman empire when Saint Valentine was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry, and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire, during his imprisonment, he is said to have healed the daughter of his jailer Asterius and before his execution, according to the legendary account, he wrote, "from your Valentine" as a farewell to her. By the 15th century, his sacred gesture had evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). Since then Valentine's Day symbols that are famously used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Red roses and red dress shirts are a basic signs and dresses worn out to show the passion for freedom of love and affection.
