What are the origins of Valentines day?

There is controversy around St. Valentine's identification. One story claims that on February 14 (in two distinct years) in the third century, Roman Emperor Claudius II executed two individuals named Valentine. According to one legend surrounding St. Valentine, he was a priest who was imprisoned for disobeying a Roman law prohibiting soldiers from getting married. He was put to death for his continued covert marriages to lovers.

According to a different story, everything began when a priest in prison fell in love with one of his visitors and started to write letters to her. Before being executed, the priest allegedly wrote the woman a note that was addressed to her as "From your Valentine." These two tales have romantic overtones.
