Valentine was the name of a saint in the ancient Roman Emperor during the rule of Claudius II. The priest was helping the Christian community, who was prohibited from support as per the emperor's orders. The saint was assisting many Christian couples and helped them get married since there was a ban on getting married.

Claudius II believed that the soldiers of the army don't perform to their full potential in the influence of love and married life. Hence he prohibited the soldiers from getting married. Saint Valentine, however, was a believer of love, and he always extended the word about Christianity and how love equals God. The saint helped many soldiers by getting them married and escaping to the army.

When Claudius II got to know about such an act of the saint, he ordered his people to execute the saint and all saints named Valentine. This way, three saints were executed by the emperor on February 14.

As per the writings, later in the 5th century, the catholic church began the celebration on February 14 to honor the sacrifice of all three saints named Valentine. Since then, the day has been celebrated to honor love and compassion.

The Celebration of Lupercalia 

There is another legend behind the celebration of Valentine's day. In the ancient Roman era, there was a festival celebrated called Lupercalia on February 15. This was not a celebration but more of a torture to females and the sacrifice of animals. The animals like goats, dogs, bulls, and more were cut, and their skin was separated.

The soldiers would then beat the women with these skins of animals. They would hold the woman on the ground facing up and slapping her thighs with the hides of the sacrificed animals. In the beginning, it was a ritual believed in making the women fertile, but later it became a matter of fun and fiesta for the soldiers.

Later, this day became the celebration of Valentine's day, and it became the day of love we know today.

Let's uncover the hidden meaning behind the day of Valentine in a Numerological manner.
