It is believed that many centuries ago three martyrs sharing the name Valentine were killed on or around 14 February. One in particular was a Bishop who was killed because of his duties to love. He secretly married young couples at a time when the Roman Emperor wanted men to be single so they would be more inclined to join the army.
On his dying day he left a note for his beloved with the words from your Valentine which we still use today in our greetings cards. Today more romantic notions are associated with the day but how well do you know these lovely nuggets of trivia?
