St. Valentines day in Bulgaria

St. Valentine’s day is one of the most popular holidays in the world. The day is dedicated to the love and people pour out their feelings in a small, exquisite valentine’s. There are many legends about St. Valentine but the most touching one says that Valentine was a Christian priest during the rule of Clavdius ІІ. The Emperor had difficulties to assemble his army and he found the reason in the adherence of the men to their wives and families. So the marriages were forbidden by the Emperor but Valentine continued to perform the marriage ceremony in secret.

One day the prison warder came to him and asked him to cure his blind daughter. Several weeks passed away and Valentine still couldn’t help the girl but he felt in love with her. One day the soldiers arrested Valentine and put him in the prison because of his religion. The jailer wanted to help him but all that the priest wished, was a piece of paper and ink. He wrote a letter to the girl and the warder gave it to his daughter. Later on Valentine was executed. When the maid opened the letter a miracle happened and she saw again. And the first thing she saw was yellow saffron and a massage – “From your Valentine”. Even today the valentine’s cards have been signed this way. The receiver should guess who sends the love message.
