What is the origin of Valentine's day?

What is the origin of Valentine's day? No one really knows for sure. But there are a few prevailing theories.

One story goes that Valentine was a Roman priest who was executed during the reign of Emperor Claudius II. He was killed because he performed marriages against the Emperor's orders. According to legend, he fell in love with the jailer's daughter while he was in prison and sent her a note signed "From your Valentine" before he was executed.

Another story suggests that Valentine was actually a Christian martyr who died during the persecution of Christians by Emperor Aurelian. The story goes that he healed the blind daughter of his jailer and when the Emperor found out, he had Valentine executed. Before his death, it's said that he sent her a letter signed "From your Valentine."

What Are the 7 Days of Valentine's Day?

Forget roses and chocolates. This year, make your Valentine's Day 2023 the best yet by following our guide to the seven days of love.

On day one, start things off with a bang by planning a romantic evening out. Surprise your loved one with tickets to their favorite show or a reservation at their favorite restaurant.

Day two is all about spoiling them rotten. Stay in and cook them their favorite meal, or order in from their favorite takeout place. Then spend the rest of the day giving them all of the attention they deserve.

Day three is all about expressing your love for them. Write them a heartfelt letter, or record yourself reading it for them to listen to later. Or maybe craft a photo album documenting your time together.

Day four is all about fun and games! Plan an afternoon of activities that you both enjoy, like visiting a nearby amusement park or going for a hike in the park.

Day five is all about pampering. Give them a relaxing massage, or take them out for a day of beauty treatments.

Day six is all about getting close to them. Spend the day cuddling on the couch and watching their favorite movies or TV shows.

And finally, on day seven, end things on a high note by planning another special evening out. Maybe this time it's an intimate dinner at home or a night at your favorite hotel.

What to Do on Valentine's Day for Singles

Just because you're single doesn't mean you can't enjoy Valentine's Day! In fact, it's the perfect opportunity to treat yourself. So put on your favorite outfit, do your hair and makeup, and go out and enjoy a nice meal. Or, you could stay in, order some takeout, and watch a romantic movie.

You could also use Valentine's Day as an opportunity to do something you've always wanted to do but never had the time for. This could be anything from taking a pottery class to going on a road trip. The sky's the limit!

And if you're feeling really adventurous, you could always try celebrating Valentine's Day in a non-traditional way. For example, you could volunteer at a local animal shelter or visit a nursing home and brighten someone's day.

Whatever you decide to do, just remember that there is no right or wrong way to celebrate Valentine's Day. The most important thing is to do what makes YOU happy.
