About 1700 years ago there was a man called Valentine. He was a priest. He liked to see young people in love. He wanted people to get married because he wanted them to have a family. But the Emperor Claudius didn’t want men to get married. He wanted men to fight on the army. He wanted more solders. Valentine didn’t agree. He helped men and women to get married in secret. Emperor Claudius didn’t know about this. When Claudius heard about the story of Valentine in jail for 20 years. After 20 years, Claudius killed Valentine on February 14th. Everybody thought Valentine was a good man because he helped lovers. That’s why we celebrate St. Valentine’s Day every year. 😁
