Welcome to the Valentine's Day page
Apparently the modern concept of St. Valentine's Day has little connection with the two Saints called Valentine martyred in 3rd Century Rome, except that their feast days were celebrated on February 14th. (which seems a pretty strong connection to me)

It is thought that the tradition of exchanging  a token of love arose out of a 14th Century French and English custom, by which the youth of the day drew names from a box called a valentine. The person who's name was drawn would be the 'valentine' of the person who picked it. A latter day lucky dip of love !!
