"On February 14, tokens of love and affection are exchanged
throughout North America and parts of Europe. Children give
Valentines to their classmates and couples express their affection
for each other with cards, candies, flowers and other gifts. Valentine's
Day celebrates friendship, romantic love and marriage. The origin
of this feast leads us back to the life of a Christian saint and
an ancient Roman festival. Exploring the meaning of this feast leads
us into a landscape of story and a world of delight in the love
and affection human beings have for each other." - Virtual Museum of Canada.
