Saint Valentines Day, also known as Valentines Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is a holiday observed on February 14 each year.
Today, Saint Valentines Day is an official feast day in the Anglican Communion, as well as in the Lutheran Church.
Valentine’s Day is mentioned ruefully by Ophelia in Hamlet (1600–1601):
To-morrow is Saint Valentine’s day,
All in the morning betime,
And I a maid at your window,
To be your Valentine.
Then up he rose, and donn’d his clothes,
And dupp’d the chamber-door;
Let in the maid, that out a maid
Never departed more.—William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act IV, Scene 5
