Valentine's Day History

Did you know that Valentine's Day first became associated with the idea of 'romantic love' in the High Middle Ages when the tradition of courtly love flourished.

Geoffrey Chaucer wrote:
For this was on seynt Volantynys day
Whan euery bryd comyth there to chese his make.
-Parlement of Foules (1382).

["For this was Saint Valentine's Day, 
when every bird cometh there to choose his mate"]
