Did you know this about Valentine's Day?

Valentine's Day is close! You have probably heard of the origin of the holiday, which is named after St. Valentine, a saint from the 3rd century. He was imprisoned and sentenced to death for his Christian faith, as the Romans still considered Christians to be heretics at the time. One of the legends says that his main transgression was the reporting of young couples in secret, contrary to the emperor's order. In prison, he was visited by the blind jailer's daughter, whom he fell in love with. He wrote poems to her and restored her sight with his requests. So much for refreshing the memory.
