Here is a bit of Valentine's trivia....
Saint Valentine's Day, is an annual commemoration held on February 14 celebrating love and affection. The day is named after one or more early Christian martyrs named Valentine and was established by Pop Gelasisus I in in 500 AD.
The first recorded association of Valentine's Day with romantic love is in Parlement of Foules (1382) by Geoffrey Chaucer. He wrote:
For this was on seynt Volantynys day
Whan euery bryd comyth there to chese his make.
["For this was Saint Valentine's Day, when every bird cometh there to choose his mate."]
This poem was written to honor the first anniversary of the engagement of King Richard II and Anne of Bohemia. A treaty providing for a marriage was signed on May 2, 1381. (When they were married eight months later, they were each only 15 years old).
