Google Celebrates This Year Valentine's Day With This Doodle

Google is celebrating the most "romantic" day of the year with a cool lovely doodle portraying the regular love letters and gifts usually exchanged on this day.

Valentine's Day, also known as Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine or lovers day, is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14. It originated as a Western Christian liturgical feast day honoring one or more early saints named Valentinus, and is recognized as a significant cultural and commercial celebration in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.

But who is really this man called Saint Valentines and why is he associated with love? Well, the saint officially recognised by the Roman Catholic Church was a real person who died around AD 270.

An account from 1400s describes Valentine as a priest who was beheaded by Emperor Claudius II for helping Christian couples wed.

The emperor had banned marriage as he thought single men made better soldiers. Valentine felt this was unfair so he celebrated marriages in secret. When the emperor found out he was thrown in jail and sentenced to death.

So you see, the man died for love. He so much cherished people getting married and stood by them. This day is marked out to celebrate agape love but it's unfortunate so many people are ignorant of what today should be and they celebrate it the wrong way.
