Better late than never...Valentine's Fever!

EN Journalist Nano explains all about the origin of Valentine’s DayHow was your Valentine's Day?How was your Valentine's Day?

Valentine’s Day

Valentine is a very old party where many people around the world celebrate Valentine’s Day by showing appreciation for the people they love or adore. Some people take their loved ones for a romantic dinner at a restaurant while others may choose this day to propose or get married. Many people give greeting cards, chocolates, jewelry or flowers, particularly roses, to their partners or admirers on Valentine’s Day, Valentine's day It is also a time to appreciate friends in some social circles and cultures like the United States.


The origins of Valentine's Day:

While the origins are not clear, but many sources believe that it stems from the story of St Valentine, a Roman priest who was martyred on or around February 14 in the year 270 CE. How he became the patron saint of lovers remains a mystery, but one theory is that the church used the day of St Valentine’s martyrdom to Christianize the old Roman Lupercalia, a pagan festival held around the middle of February. The ancient ceremony included putting girls’ names in a box and letting the boys draw them out. Couples would then be paired off until the following year.


Valentine's day has many symbols, for example: Valentine’s Day Colors (Red, White & Pink), cupid, flowers, hearts etc...

- Valentine’s Day Colors:



Red has long been understood to represent life, love, war and death. Interestingly, these passions and experiences of humankind can all be found in the very first account of man in the Bible. The first human life in all creation was a man named “Adam.” It is worth noting that the name in Hebrew can be translated as either “man” or “red.”

Not only was Adam the first man to experience life, he was the first man to experience an intimate and loving relationship with God.


The color whites

The color white is generally understood to symbolize purity. When speaking of the forgiveness of sins, Isaiah 1:18 says, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”



Pink is the lovely result of combining red and white. May it serve as a reminder of how the significant meaning of the colors red and white work together to tell the complete love story between Christ and his church.



Cupid, as the Romans called him, was first introduced in the mythology of the Greeks as Eros, the literal personification of love. Interestingly, Eros has been called both “the oldest and at the same time the youngest of the gods.”1 As the oldest, the poet Hesiod spoke of “the beginning of the world as a great shapeless mass or chaos, out of which was fashioned first the spirit of love, Eros (Cupid).”2 Eros began the task of bringing opposite elements, like heaven and earth, together in pairs to bring order and harmony to the world, Though Hesiod’s mythical poetry reads quite differently than the biblical story of creation, it is striking that the Greeks identified love as the guiding principle in creation. Romans tells us that “since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities — his eternal power and divine nature — have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made” (1:20). Does not the earth, which provides for every need of mankind, reveal a divinely loving creator? As the Bible tells us, “God is love” (1 John 4:8).
