History has it that Valentine’s Day, a day Romance Lupercalia survived the initial rise of Christianity but was outlawed, as it was deemed “un-Christian”, at the end of the 5th century, when Pope Gelasius declared February 14 St. Valentine’s Day. It was not until much later, that the day became definitively associated with love.
St Valentine’s Day is an annual festival to celebrate romantic love, friendship and admiration. Every year, on the 14th February people celebrate this day by sending messages of love and affection to partners, family and friends, that’s why I took my time to meet with some Nigerian couples who penned down some romantic and lovely messages to celebrate their partners.
Below are their messages:
