A long, long, long time ago, Valentine’s Day wasn’t just about candy hearts and red roses (shocking, we know).

Feb. 14 actually celebrates a historic, and somewhat tragic event steeped in religious controversy. Saint Valentine — the original romantic — gave significance to the holiday, now known more for its Hallmark value.
