Valentine's Day, also known as Saint Valentine's Day, is a holiday observed on February 14.  Valentine's Day was was first established by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD, and later removed from the General Roman Calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI.  This holiday was honoring one or more early Christian martyrs like Saint Valentine, Valentine of Rome and Valentine of Terni.  It is traditionally a day on which couples express their love for each other by presenting flowers, giving confectionery like candy hearts and chocolates, and sending greeting cards known as valentines. The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages (1000-1300 AD), when the tradition of courtly love flourished.
