Today's Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day is celebrated all around the world on 14th February, however, not everyone knows why this day is celebrated. The truth is that this day is older than most people think.

The story says that in 270 AD Rome had to fight in many wars, however, the men didn’t want to join the army. The emperor Claudius II believed that this happened because they didn’t want to leave alone their wives or their girlfriends, and that’s why he banned all marriages. However, a priest named Valentine disobeyed him and married people secretly. Unfortunately, the emperor's soldiers caught him on 14th February and sentenced him to death. Before dying, the soldiers let him write a note to his beloved in which he said "from your Valentine".

There are different opinions on this day. First, many think that this day is mainly organized by the shops, to earn money and that love should not be shown one day but every day of the year. On the contrary, there are others who think that this day is perfect for romantic things and for showing people that they love them.

In my opinion, this day is very nice and I support it because, despite it’s true that you have to prove your love every day of the year, remembering it with a flower, a teddy bear, a song or a film is always good and is very romantic. Furthermore, in the current period of crisis, buying these objects helps the shops and the economy. I dislike people who criticize this day, because if you don’t like it or you're not in favor, don’t celebrate it, it’s easy.

Here's a fantastic song to listen to:
