This month of love and friendship is a time to show your feelings to your loved ones, and although many believe that it is a festivity aimed only at couples, it should not be overlooked that it is also a day to recognize the value of friendship of those who have been with you through thick and thin.
And although there is no shortage of "anti valentines" or "forever alone's" on this day, there are more people who are preparing to give the best surprise this February 14 and make it unforgettable.
The origin of this celebration dates back to the 3rd century, in Rome, which is based on a legend that tells the emotional story of a priest who defied the orders of the Roman Emperor Claudius Aurelius Marcus Gothicus, Claudius II, who had prohibited the celebration. of marriages for young people, because in his opinion singles without family and with fewer ties were better soldiers.
The priest Saint Valentine considered that the decree was unfair and secretly celebrated marriages for young lovers and for this he was martyred and later executed on February 14. Emperor Claudius ordered Valentine to be imprisoned. Then, the officer Asterius, in charge of imprisoning him, wanted to ridicule and test Valentin. He challenged him to restore sight to his daughter, named Julia, who was born blind. Valentine accepted and, in the name of the Lord, he restored his sight.
This fact shook Asterius and his family, who converted to Christianity. However, Valentine remained in prison and the weak Emperor Claudius finally ordered him to be martyred and executed on February 14, 270. The grateful young Julia planted a pink-flowered almond tree next to his grave. Hence the almond tree is a symbol of lasting love and friendship.
