St Valentine's Day

We seem to be losing the 'saint' reducing today to just 'Valentine's Day'.  St.Valentine is noted on the 14th February in the Cuerden Psalter and I wonder how the day was observed. . . . in the 13th century when it was written, but also since. . . how observances might have changed throughout its long life?

On 14th February 2013 I carved simple hearts into red 'Desiree' potatoes and placed a basket of them in the UCLan library so that anyone could take one.
