What İs Valentine's Day? Different Valentine's Day Legends


Valentine's Day is celebrated every year on February 14 in the world. There are various legends for this special day. What we hear most is undoubtedly what is about Pastor Valentine.



According to this legend, Father Valentin in the Catholic church died and the reason for his death was the 2nd King of Rome, Claudius. The reason for this was that the Roman king was a very cruel king. The biggest problem of this king was that he could not gather enough men for his army. According to the King, the only reason for this was that the men in Rome were married or fond of family. To prevent this, the marriage of men was prohibited by the king. However, Pastor Valentin broke this ban. He secretly married the couples who wanted to get married with his friend. However, after a while this situation went to the ear of the king. The pastor was killed by the king. However, according to some sources, it is said that he was beaten to death, and according to some sources, he was killed by cutting his throat. There is no clear source for this situation. As part of this situation, he was commemorated in the rite of honor in 1969.



According to the other legend, it is in this case that the Valentine's Day has nothing to do with the priest Valentin.
According to this legend, Chaucer, a poet who lived in the 14th century, is a poet who speaks of love and romance. According to the poet, birds determine their mate on February 14. Valentine's Day comes from here.
