  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Word Origins 24.

  • The Word origin today is Valentine's Day.

  • Okay.

  • So let's look at the note here.

  • There are actually three different saints named Valentine recognized by the Catholic

  • church and all were martyred.

  • They all ended up being put to death.

  • The legend most likely connected to the origin of Valentine's Day was a priest who lived

  • during the third century in Rome.

  • The emperor at that time Claudius II, Believed single men were better soldiers than those

  • with a wife and a family.

  • Of course married men were more obligated to a wife and a family and realized their

  • death would be devastating.

  • Well devastating to their family , especially back at that time.

  • If he got killed they were kind of left just helpless..

  • So he would probably... he'd fight but he wouldn't take as many chances.

  • Maybe he wouldn't fight as hard.

  • So the emperor kind of realized this. Okay.

  • Let's continue here.

  • Emperor Claudius II outlawed marriage for young men.

  • He wanted a lot of better soldiers.

  • Valentine of course understood this was an unjust tyrannical law and defied it.

  • So he went against it.

  • He said this is a crazy law.

  • I am going to still marry people no matter what.

  • Yes.

  • By continuing to secretly perform marriages for young couples . So he went against the

  • emperor and he still married people.

  • Even though it was against the law. and so he put his life in danger in this sense.

  • Okay.

  • Let's continue here.

  • After it was discovered the emperor ordered Valentine to be imprisoned and eventually

  • be put to death.

  • However , before his death there are some who claim Valentine may have in fact sent

  • the first Valentine, Valentine letter or card.

  • He fell in love with the daughter of his jailor or maybe we should say she fell in love with

  • him in which she often visited him before he was put to death.

  • and he wrote a letter to her before he died and signed it from your Valentine.

  • So this is where we got the idea.

  • Obviously, he was very good to saving lovers.

  • Perhaps he wrote the first Valentine.

  • Anyway, this is the legend this is the story.

  • Supposedly of how Valentine's Day originated.

  • Or how it started. Anyway, I hope you got it , I hope it is clear.

  • Thank you for your time.

  • Bye-bye.
