It grew into an occasion when couples gifted each other chocolates, flowers, and portrait paintings to express their love. The notion of Valentine's day also connects with the European folk practice of celebrating the coming of spring after the harsh winters. 

There are numerous references to Valentine's Day in English literature. One of the earliest references to Valentine’s day was made by Chaucer in his Parliament of Fowls in 1382. Even Shakespeare referred to Valentine’s day in his play Hamlet in 1600-01 when he wrote:

"Tomorrow is Saint Valentine's day, All in the morning betime,

And I a maid at your window, To be your Valentine.

Then up he rose, and donn'd his clothes, And dupp'd the chamber door;

Let in the maid, that out a maid, Never departed more."

— William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act IV, Scene 5


In current times, the gift-giving culture of Valentine's day continues. The practice of giving flowers, chocolates, and handwritten notes is as strong as ever.
