According to one legend, Valentine actually sends the first 'valentine' greeting himself. While in jail, it is believed that Valentine chop down in love with a young beautiful girl — who was the jailor's daughter — who visited him during his imprisonment. The morning of the execution, he is said to have sent the keeper's daughter a farewell message signed, "From your Valentine." Although the reality behind the Valentine legends is misty, the stories certainly highlight his appeal as a compassionate, brave, and, most importantly, romantic person. It's no surprise that by the Middle Ages, Valentine was one of the most popular saints in France and England.

If a girl was curious and brave enough she could conjure up the appearance of her future spouse by going to the graveyard on St. Valentine's Eve at midnight. She would then sing a prescribed chant and run around the church twelve times.
