The origin of Valentines Day is riddled with myth. What we do know is that February has long been a month of romance.
Valentine, who later became St. Valentine, was a priest who sent the first "valentine" greeting himself. While in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girl who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, which he signed "From your Valentine"
