February 14, also known as Valentine's Day, is approaching. Do you know its history? Here’s some background on what day it is, and why it is celebrated.
Every year we celebrate this day with a gift, a special dinner with our partner. But its little-known history goes way back. Valentin was a third century priest from Rome, known for secretly marrying young couples in love. This went against the Roman Emperor Claudius II, who preferred young boys to dedicate themselves to military life without commitments or partners. Valentin did not agree with that law so marriages were performed secretly, until the emperor found out and sentenced him to death on February 14, 270, known from then on as Valentine’s Day.
This day was religious until it was eliminated from the religious calendar in the 20th century. In the 20th century, stores began to see it a business opportunity. The day became a commercial opportunity to boost couple-related product sales. The most popular product was Valentine's Day cards.
At Per Purr, we want to celebrate Valentine's Day as a day of love and friendship between couples, friends and family. For us, the most important thing is to love whoever you are. So on this day, whether you have a partner or not, give something to that special person you want to celebrate. Take a look at our Winter Essentials and choose a special product.
Hearing that Christmas has become more commercial because of the gifts is a common cliché. But we bet that if you receive a present this time of year, it will make you feel happy and grateful.
Have you ever asked yourself where the tradition of gift giving comes from? There are several possible stories about its roots. Some historians say that the origin of exchanging gifts dates back to ancient Rome, where before they celebrated Christmas, they held the festival of Saturnalia between December 17 and 24.

It’s said that the tradition of giving a gift to loved ones at Christmas originated with this Roman festival, although some relate it to the gifts the Three Wise Men gave to Jesus: the gold, frankincense, and myrrh they brought to Bethlehem.
