Stores in Sioux Falls, SD begin to stock the shelves with treats for classmates, lovers and friends.

Over time, numerous stories of how Valentine’s Day came about have developed into the legend we know today. Saint Valentine, a Catholic priest who lived in Rome in the 3rd century, holds the name of this holiday. At the time of his life, strict laws were in place prohibiting Roman soldiers to marry. In secret, Saint Valentine began to marry Roman soldiers in hidden Christian ceremonies. This was the beginning of Valentine’s reputation and opinion on the importance of love. Eventually, Valentine was arrested and jailed for his committed crimes. While imprisoned, he cared for fellow prisoners and his jailor’s blind daughter. Legend has it that Valentine cured the jailor’s daughter’s blindness and before his execution, was determined to write a love message signed ‘from your Valentine’ addressed to her.
On every Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day marks the celebration of romantic love, admiration and friendships. Couples admire their better halves and express their love for one another. Sympathetic messages are sent to loved ones while classrooms honor Valentine’s Day by sharing themed candies. So, what recently mixed candies should be expected to appear in the Target aisle?
