Valentine’s Day FAQs

What Is Valentine’s Day?

Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day, is a holiday celebrated every year on February 14th. Named after Saint Valentine, a priest who (according to legend) believed in the importance of love and defied an emperor to help others marry their loves, this holiday is now celebrated around the world by people reaffirming their affection and love for one another. While romantic gestures are still the most common way people mark this holiday, expressions of platonic and familial love are also cherished. Galentine’s Day, celebrated the day before on February 13th, is a relatively new way to get into the spirit of Valentine’s Day with close friends!

When Is Valentine’s Day 2024?

Valentine’s Day is on Wednesday, February 14, 2024. However, many people start celebrating Valentine’s Week on February 7th, which is known as Rose Day, or on February 13th for Galentine’s Day. Other celebrations that take place during Valentine’s Week include:

  • February 8 - Propose Day
  • February 9 - Chocolate Day
  • February 10 - Teddy Day
  • February 11 - Promise Day
  • February 12 - Kiss Day
  • February 13 - Hug Day

Why Is Valentine’s Day Celebrated?

Valentine’s Day was originally a feast day dedicated to honoring Saint Valentine. Medieval poet and author Geoffrey Chaucer is credited with creating the notion of the more romantic, “modern” Valentine’s Day, which continues to be observed today by people celebrating their romantic (or even platonic!) love with another person.
