3. It wasn’t until the 1300s that Valentine’s Day became the day of love.

Roman Pope Gelasius was the bishop who officially declared February 14, St. Valentine’s Day. This was actually at the end of the 5th century; however, it wasn’t until the 1300s that Valentine’s Day became a holiday designed for celebrating romance and love.
