Love

It is February and soon people in many countries of the world will celebrate Valentine’s Day, most romantic holiday of the year. Now is the time to choose a gift for your dear Valentine. In this article we provide recommendations for men who are searching best gifts for their beloved women.

First let us go into history of this holiday.
Valentine’s Day is celebrated annually on February 14. It is believed that the holiday comes from both ancient Roman and Christian traditions. The Catholic Encyclopedia writes that there were three Christian saints who beared the name of Valentine: priest in Rome,  bishop in Terni and one churchman about whom nothing is known. All them were martyred on 14th February, but the first of them was honored by Pope Gelasius.

Many scientists suggest that this Christian priest lived around 270 AD in Rome and he fell into disgrace of Roman emperor Claudius II. It was the time when the Roman Empire began to fade and Claudius II needed soldiers. He believed that married men were attached to their families, which prevents them from being good soldiers. He considered that marriage makes men weak. Therefore, in order to have a good army, Claudius II prohibited marriage by an edict. People disliked the edict, but did not protest because of fear. In these conditions, priest Valentine was the one who dared to hold secret marriage ceremonies of soldiers.  When Claudius II found out about it, he ordered to take the priest in prision, where he tried to turn him into Roman religion. However, Valentine did not refuse from Christianity and as a result was executed on February 14. Thus Valentine became a fearless symbol of love.
