What Is The Origin Of Valentine’s Day?

There are many different stories as for the origin of Valentine’s day.  Many of them  are pure fables,  but one that I have researched and found to be pretty consistent and to be true is this:

As many other actual events in our society, Valentine’s day has it’s origin in The Roman Empire, which at one time was the “center of the world”.  Claudius II was a cruel emperor who led many bloody wars, but was having a very hard time in getting soldiers to fight his wars. He believed that the reason for such an unwillingness for fighting for him was that soldiers didn’t want to go to war because of  their wives (not willing to leave them).  As a result Claudius ordered for all marriages and engagement to be canceled in Rome.

France is the country of food. Lyon, the city where I was born is even called the capital of food.  It is famous for its wonderful “saussisson sec” and “saussisson cru”.  Saussisson sec is a dry salami sausage, as you would call it here, and saussisson cru is a raw salami sausage that is to be cooked before serving.  This saussisson cru is also served breaded.  The saussisson is first boiled in water and then rolled in a bread dough like and baked.  It is called “saussisson brioche”
