Why Saint Walenty is the patron of lovers?
Christians recognize at least three saints named Walenty. The story of one of Saints Waly began when the Roman Emperor Claudius II issued a ban on marriages for young men. He believed that single men were better soldiers. St. Walenty lost his life because he defied his will and gave weddings. The second story is about Valentine, who was executed for helping the persecuted. He sent a letter from his prison with the signature “From Your Valentine”.

Why exactly does the red roses give a loved one?
Many people think that K + M + B are the first letters of the names of the Three Kings. This is not true. This entry is derived from the Latin abbreviation CMB or Christus Mansion Benedicat, which means “May Christ bless this house.” This is a very old tradition. Already in the Old Testament, in the Book of Exodus, there is a reference to the Angel of Death who killed the original, avoiding the blood-marked lamb of the door.

Does the amount of roses matter?
Yes, for example: one rose means love at first sight, 33 means “I love you”, when asking for a partner’s hand, you need as many as 108, and 999 means “we will always be together”.
