Valentine's Day, a festival of romantic love, is celebrated on February 14 in many countries around the world, although it is not a bank holiday in most of them. People exchange gifts, chocolates, flowers and special hand written cards (usually heart-shaped valentine cards). The most common Valentine's Day symbols are hearts, especially in reds and pinks, and pictures or models of Cupid. The day became associated with romantic love in the Middle Ages in England. This may have followed on from the Pagan fertility festivals that were held all over Europe as the winter came to an end.
