My History Of Valentine's Day

  • Valentine

Valentine's Day all started back in the third century. I'm not going to bore you with details but basically there was an emperor in Rome that wanted a big army so stopped men from getting married so they would join. Saint Valentine continued to marry the people of Rome in secret. Finally he was caught and put in jail and sentenced to death. A guard's daughter went into the cell and told him he was right for what he did. On the day he died he wrote "From your Valentine".

So that's what stated the 14th of February tradition of Valentine's Day. Today we celebrate it by exchanging cards and chocolates. I'm sure we pretty much all have an embarrassing Valentine's day story and here is mine.

It was Year 3 and I had a big crush on this guy (let's call him Toby) and everyone knew it. So my mum made this massive card to give to Toby and foolishly I gave it to him. I signed it not knowing he would know it was me. When break came I made my friend give him the card; he opened it in class after break then said something to his friend - to this day I still don't know what he said - ripped up the card and put it in the bin. Ha there went my Valentine!

Please share your Valentine stories, romantic or funny, in the comment section; I need to know I am not the only one.

My story is in a similar situation as you put this time i'm in year 6!
Everyone knew i had a crush on this boy, not saying...i gave him a card and he didn't know it was off me untill my friend told him!
I thought he liked me too untill i didn't get a card all day and i was a bit disappointed but at the very end of the day my friend came running towards me with a card and some heart shaped jelly bellys and said that this is for you and i finally got my card and prezzie of my valentine... i guess my story kind of ender a bit better but hey. Also that week we went to the valentines together and he got me a cookie. Such a cute story...

I don't know how my mum and him started to talk about valentines day but my mum suddenly decides to tell the builder all of my private life(thanks mum=D) she tyold him that it was my first valentines day without a valentine and i was like clearly not. but he goes, how about my son (whos 18) and my mum was like she's only 13 and i was sat there like well this is awkward. bearing in mind i had just got up and had NO make up on!!!! i dont look trhat old... xxx
