On Valentine's Day, people pronounce or re-affirm their feelings of romantic love for someone, often by sending cards or giving gifts.

Valentine's Day, also called Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is an annual event celebrated on February 14th.

Originating as a Western Christian feast day honouring one or more early saints named Valentinus, Valentine's Day is now recognized as a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.

The first valentines were sent in the 15th century, but it was not until the 17th century did people start exchanging cards and letters. Valentine's Day cards weren't mass-produced until the 1840s.
The most common gifts given are:
• Flowers, particularly red roses
• Chocolates and/or candy
• Jewelry
• Teddy bears
• Toy hearts
• Sparkling wine
• Cosmetics
• Clothing, including lingerie
