Valentine's Day—the day of love is here. Valentine's Day, which falls on the 8th day of Valentine's Week—a day after Hug Day, is about expressing your deep love and affection for that special someone.  Valentine's Day embodies the spirit of love and affection. 

This day not only teaches us to appreciate the love in every form of our relationships but also helps us to realize the importance of the most beautiful connection in our lives. Valentine's Day also carries a beautiful message that 'Love is the most beautiful feeling and we should value our close relationships. Our loved ones are the biggest strength in our lives.’

Happy Valentine's Day 2024: History

The origin of Valentine's Day can be traced back to the story of St. Valentine who is remembered for his selfless acts of help for couples. It is said that St. Valentine was sentenced to imprisonment and beheaded by Emperor Claudius II for solemnizing the marriage of couples secretly. On the day of his execution, St. Valentine sent a note to Julia, the blind daughter of the jailer, that mentioned 'Your Valentine'. Since then, Valentine's Day is celebrated every year on February 14.

Valentine's Day is also associated with Lupercalia—an ancient Roman festival for fertility— and Cupid, the Roman God of love and desire. 

If you are planning to surprise your loved one and want to make this Valentine's Day a memorable celebration of love and connections, then here are some curated quotes, wishes, messages and greetings which may help to express your romantic feelings to your special someone:
