Valentine's Day Origin.

February 15, 2013
By Sydnee Bowman of Thomas Nelson HS



The origination of Valentine's Day is said that Valentine was a priest in the third century Rome. There was also an Emperor during this time named Claudius II. He decided that single men were better soldiers than the ones who were married. He then outlawed marriafe for young men making a strong military. But, the priest decided it wasn't fair and chose to marry young couples. When the Emporer found out, he put the priest to death.
