'Why is it called Valentines?', she came back Well now....thats a good one... I said to myself, and out loud said..'..emmm' 'Will we google it?' she answered! So we did! ..and there were LOADS of theories, but we liked this one the best. Back in 270 AD in the rule of Claudius III, Claudius decided to ban men from getting married, as he figured they made better soldiers single! Bishop Valentine disagreed, and performed secret weddings for the men of the kingdom. He was then found out and jailed. He wrote a love letter to the jailors daughter whilst being imprisoned and signed it be my valentine <3 Heres a simple craft to make with kids for the valentines holiday
