Love it or hate it, there’s no denying that today is one of the most romantic days of the year.
Couples around the world will be marking Valentine’s Day with flowers, chocolates and gifts, as it’s a day devoted to celebrating romantic love.
The tradition of sending Valentine’s Day cards in particular dates all the way back to the Roman Empire.
Emperor Claudius II had banned his soldiers from getting married, as he thought having wives and families would make them poor fighters.
Valentine, who was a priest, thought this was unfair. He continued to perform marriages in secret, but was eventually discovered and sentenced to death.
Before his execution he sent one final note to the woman that he loved – signed “from your Valentine”.
If you’re not sure what to write in your Valentine’s Day card this year, look no further than these romantic quotes.
