Valentine’s Day started with early Christian saints named Valentinus and became a day of celebration with the feast of Saint Valentine’s Day. The meaning of the day changed in theMiddle Ages when the tradition of courtly love flourished. Presents, flowers, chocolates and greetings cards, known as Valentines, were all used as tokens to express love. This tradition has held strong and is still how we celebrate Valentine’s Day today, along with special meals in restaurants, hearts, balloons, winged Cupids and doves.

So how do you celebrate yours? Do you have a special (or funny!) Valentines story? Please share it with us and warm the hearts of Mid Sussex.
