For a few months a year, people all over the country gather in small towns to celebrate the most important day of the year. On Valentine's Day, everywhere you look, hearts are in abundance. It is not uncommon for children to draw hearts on their faces with permanent markers and wrap them around their vehicles. This is only one of the many traditions associated with Valentine's Day, which is prompted by the Catholic celebration of Saint Valentine's Day. For centuries Saint Valentine has been associated with romance and love because he married couples who couldn't be together otherwise. He became patron saint of marriage and love around 500 AD and was eventually recognized as being a martyr for his beliefs. The heart generally symbolizes love so it is no surprise that this holiday that celebrates romantic love would have a symbol that correlates with it.
