Valentine was a pastor who served under the reign of Emperor Claudius II during 3rd century. February 14 was devoted to the Roman goddess Juno. Romans worshipped Juno as the idol of marriage and women. Emperor Claudius II believed that bachelor men perform better as soldiers than family men. As a result he banned marriage in his empire. Valentine felt this act as injustice. He opposed Claudius and carried out marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s activities were found, Claudius sentenced him to death. So as a regard for the Saint, Valentine’s Day is celebrated.

Do you know some of the common Valentine’s Day games?
Know Your Love
Distribute small heart-shaped papers and ask each guest to write their favorite movie, food, book and how they spend their vacation. No one should mention his or her name in the paper. Then, drop papers in a bowl and ask everyone to take out in random. The person, who guesses the most correct answers, wins. This shows how you know your loved ones.
Funny Rings and Jar
For this game, take a bowl of milk or dark liquid and put the ring in it. Now ask a couple to take off their rings and throw it in the bowl which contains many other rings. Then they have to put their hands in to the bowl to take the ring of their partner without seeing it. They are allowed to take their out hands only once. The couple, who discover the right ring in the shortest time, is the winner of this game. You can fill a glass jar with candy and ask your guest to guess the number of candies inside. But before starting the game, make sure you have counted the number of candies inside. Whoever guesses right, or closest to the answer wins the game.
Lip Sticking and Matching
Draw a big face on paper and have a pair of lips cut separately. Participants in this Valentine’s Day will be blindfolded and they have to stick the lips in the right place. Write a pair of some words associated with Valentine’s Day and put them in a hat. Each piece of paper will have one word and its pair will be written on a separate sheet of paper. Your friend has to pick a word from the bowl and he has to search for the person who has the liaison word. The pair, who finds the first two words, wins this game.
Take out a person from each couple and take them to a separate room. Ask questions about the person’s spouse. Note the responses given by the person, and once all responses are recorded get some other people in the room and put the same questions to them. Now compare the answers given by each and see how they understood each other.
Party games are the best Valentine’s Day Games. But, make sure you have all the features like money, space, idea of the game etc before arranging a game.
