When is Valentine’s Day 2022?

Valentine’s Day is February 14th every year.

In 2022, the celebration of love will take place on Monday.

Although it is recognized as an important cultural, religious and commercial romantic celebration in many parts of the world, it is not a public holiday in any country.

Why is Valentine’s Day always on February 14?

The festival has its roots in the ancient Roman Fauna, a fertility celebration held on February 15 every year.

The festival also officially marks the beginning of their spring.

It is thought that boys would draw girls’ names from boxes as part of the festivities, and they would then partner and sometimes go on to marry during the festive season.

Pope Glasius I rewrote the pagan holiday into a Christian holiday around AD 496, proclaiming February 14th as St. Valentine’s Day.

St. Valentine’s name has since been used to express feelings of love.

How are Brits going to celebrate Valentine’s Day?
