Valentine’s Day: According to a majority of scholars, St. Valentine was a priest who dealt with the Roman emperor in a rather unflattering manner. The priest attracted the bad side of the emperor and that is all that is known to be facts. After this, all we are left with are tales and legends. According to one of those legends Claudius the 2nd had passed a law of sorts that men shouldn’t be married as single men made better soldiers. And due to that any soldier or anyone that was potentially one was not allowed to get married.
