Sweet Words For Your Valentine

|On February 14th Valentine’s Day is celebrated. We have been celebrating it a long time.|
Valentine’s Day commemorates the anniversary of St. Valentine's death or burial. Valentine’s Day is both a Christian and ancient Roman tradition. There are several legends about St. Valentine. One legend says St Valentine was a priest in 3rd century Rome. He married soldiers against Emperor Claudius II's decision that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families.
Another legend says St. Valentine was killed for helping Christians escape from Roman prisons where they were often beaten and tortured.
Then there's a legend which says after Emperor Claudius II sent St. Valentine to prison he was the first to send a valentine from prison. Supposedly, St. Valentine fell in love with a young girl and sent her a letter, which he signed "From your Valentine". Hence, today’s expression is still around.
My quiz won't be about the history of Valentine's Day; but it will give some some very persuasive language for your valentine.
