How Valentines Day Came to Be

How Valentines Day Came To Be?

In modern times, Valentine’s Day on February 14th is the day most of us recognise to express affection to our lovers with greetings and gifts. However do you know how it all started?

Valentine's Day is named after Saint Valentine, a Catholic priest who lived in Rome in the 3rd Century. There are many stories about St Valentine and over time these stories grew into the legend we know today.

At the time of Valentine's life, many Romans were converting to Christianity, but the Emperor Claudius II was a pagan and created strict laws about what Christians were allowed to do. Claudius believed that Roman soldiers should be completely devoted to Rome and therefore passed a law preventing them from marrying. However, St Valentine began to marry these soldiers in secret Christian ceremonies and this was the beginning of his reputation for believing in the importance of love above all else.

It may not be something you've thought much about, however now we've asked the question, I bet you're interested to learn a little more about this historic character whose very image signifies Valentines Day love. 

Whilst the mention of the name Cupid typically conjures images of a Cherub like baby wielding a bow and arrow, Eros as he was known to the Greeks and Cupid as he later was renamed by the Romans, struck at the hearts of both gods and mortals alike using his quiver filled with arrows to play with their emotions. Sharp golden arrows would arouse desire, whilst blunt lead arrows would ignite aversion and cause one to flee.

The Coat Hanger Equation Posted on 14 Dec 15:00

By Michael Wernicke

Have you ever added up the value of all your clothing?  Well, I recently went through a closet with a friend and this is what we found.  Now we didn't have all the receipts so we just used our best estimates based on what he could recall.  Nonetheless it would be a reasonable estimation.  For this exercise we only looked at his wardrobe and excluded the things he didn't have hanging up. 
  
The Clothing Equation - by Henkerman Hangers
  
So in his wardrobe he had the following (in Australian Dollars): 
5 suits x $900 = $4500 
2 vests x $150 - $300 
6 jackets X $250 = $1500 
15 Office Shirts x $120 = $1800 
10 dress pants x $250 = $2500 
Total: AUD$10,600
