Valentine's Day

February 14th is the memorial day for Saint Valentine. Because he refused to renounce his Christian faith and because he secretly married Christian couples when aiding Christians was against the law, Emperor Claudius had him arrested. When he tried to convert Claudius, the emperor had him clubbed, stoned, and then finally beheaded. Valentine is said to have been martyred on February 14, around the year 270 AD.
