There were several early Christian martyrs named Valentine. Valentine of Rome was a priest and Valentine of Terni was a bishop. There are legends and stories about miracles associated with the martyrs. But, none of them talk about love. The very first mention of Valentines and romantic love was by Geoffrey Chaucer in one of his poems. Actual Valentine cards became a popular custom in England in the early 1800's. Of course, that tradition spread way past the white cliffs of Dover. In my opinion, better than cards or even roses, is the tradition of giving a box of chocolates to the one you love.
