A Brief History of Valentine’s Day

A Brief History of Valentine’s Day:

So what is the point of Valentine’s Day?

A brief history of the day shows that a pagan ritual feast was probably overtaken by a Christian holiday feast which was then either gradually (and naturally) associated with romantic love or maybe intentionally re-associated with the concept of romantic love by a British poet from the Middle Ages while somehow being misinterpreted by later historians that suggested that things simply always were  that way.

Probably to buy candy and Hallmark cards, really.
