Valentine’s Day traditions include exchanging gifts, such as chocolates or roses, and a romantic night out on the town. School children often exchange Valentines Cards. Decorations typically feature Cupid and his arrows, doves,and hearts. The day also has religious associations, especially with the Anglican and Lutheran church. Religious celebrations may feature church services or feasts.

Cupid became a symbol of Valentine’s Day due to the fact that he is the Roman god associated with the erotic, passionate type of love. His arrows cause his targets to fall in love.
