Lutheran Church see calendar. There are a number of martyrdom stories associated with various Valentines connected to February 14,  including an account of the imprisonment of Saint Valentine of Rome for ministering to Christians persecuted under the Roman Empire in the third century. In 18th-century England, it grew into an occasion in which couples expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards known as "valentines". Valentine's Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards. Saint Valentine's Day is not a public holiday in any country, although it is an official feast day in the Anglican Communion  and the Lutheran Church.
