A conventional and widely accepted belief about the holiday itself is that Valentine's Day grew out of a Middle Ages tradition of celebrating Feb. 14 as the day "the birds began to pair."History.com notes that February has long been associated with being a month of love, and Feb. 15 was celebrated in ancient times as a fertility festival.

So as we spend the rest of the day with family, friends, and lovers; eat, laugh. and say "i love you" often and mean it when you say it. It never gets old, therefore it never dies. Happy Valentine's Day to all!
