According to this legend the priest gave a letter to his jailer's daughter and signed it "from your Valentine", he had fallen in love with the young lady. There are also some origins of celebrations with the Roman Festival Lupercalia, a festival that was held in mid-February. This festival celebrated the coming of Spring and everything new. It also included pairing fertility rites to women with men by a lottery. Then by the end of the 5th century it was known to be St. Valentine's Day instead of Lupercalia. From about the 14th century it has been celebrated as a day of romance.
