Valentine's Day Festival celebrates love and lovers in the most special way. Lovers, especially those who plan to express their love to their sweetheart for the first time keenly await the festival. The most popular tradition of Valentine's Day is to express love for dear one with an exchange of cards, flowers, chocolates and other gifts of love. These days people exchange Valentine's Day greetings not just with sweetheart but also with their parents, teachers, friends, siblings or anyone else they are close to.
Historians say, Valentine's Day festival originated from the mid-February fertility festival celebrated in pagan times. Legend of martyrdom of Saint Valentine of Rome is also strongly associated with Valentine's Day tradition of expressing love to dear ones. Some scholars say the romance was linked with Valentine's Day because of the popular belief in England and France during the Middle Ages that birds began to start looking for their mate from 14th February.
