Stories about the origin of Valentine's Day abound. One popular legend traces the holiday back almost 2000 years. The Roman emperor Claudius made it illegal for young men to get married without his permission. One priest, St. Valentine, defied the emperor's command and secretly performed marriages. When Claudius found out, he had Valentine thrown in jail. Then, on February 14, Valentine was executed. About two centuries later, the church named February 14 Valentine's Day in his honor. Today, people give flowers, candy, cards, and gifts to the people they love on this special day.
