Voting Poll
Valentine’s Day was apparently first associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery and sending greeting cards (known as ‘valentines’). Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards and enormous pressure to participate on this day.
