P.V.C Valentine Special

Welcome to P.V.C Valentine Special:
We're comparing the Valentine's day to the actual  man named Valentinus was martyred on February 14 late in the third century A.D.
Even though We celebrate V. day at February the 14th, this was the they when St. Valentine died.
—this much we know. But when it comes to details about the life of St. Valentine, legend often supersedes fact. As you celebrate this Valentine’s Day, find out the truth about the man for whom the day is named, as well as some other intriguing facts about history's most romantic holiday.The legend says that the Roman Empire outlawed marriages. This was done so that young men would be free to join the Imperial army without the connection of marriage and family; it was meant to make them better soldiers. St. Valentine is said to have defied this law and secretly performed wedding ceremonies for young couples. For his defiance, St. Valentine was arrested, jailed and eventually martyred.
  • In all, there are about a dozen St. Valentines, plus a pope.
The saint we celebrate on Valentine’s Day is known officially as St. Valentine of Rome in order to differentiate him from the dozen or so other Valentines on the list. Because “Valentinus”—from the Latin word for worthy, strong or powerful

  •  You can celebrate Valentine’s Day several times a year.
Because of the abundance of St. Valentines on the Roman Catholic roster, you can choose to celebrate the saint multiple times each year. Besides February 14, you might decide to celebrate St. Valentine of Viterbo on November 3. Or maybe you want to get a jump on the traditional Valentine celebration by feting St. Valentine of Raetia on January 7. Women might choose to honor the only female St. Valentine (Valentina), a virgin martyred in Palestine on July 25, A.D. 308. The Eastern Orthodox Church officially celebrates St. Valentine twice, once as an elder of the church on July 6 and once as a martyr on July 30.

Winner: I would say let February the 14th be without any Irony, Let us defy the Empire, and forget  and songs of sorrow and vile of past.
