The History of Valentine’s Day

Before we get into those fun Valentine’s Day songs for kids, here’s some Valentine’s Day 101.

If you’re not familiar with Valentine’s Day, it’s an annual holiday, celebrated on February 14th.

It’s a special occasion that originated as a way to honor the Christian martyr, Saint Valentine. But over the years, it has become a day to celebrate romantic love and loving relationships of any kind.

Couples (and want-to-be couples), friends, and family often exchange gifts and Valentine’s Day cards.

But, we think one of the best ways to celebrate the day is with a festive party complete with themed songs, decorations, and treats.
