the saint of good health and the patron of
beekeepers and pilgrims.
A proverb says that "Saint Valentine brings the keys of roots". Plants and
flowers start to grow on this day. It has been celebrated as the day when
the first work in the vineyards and in the fields commences. It is also said
that birds propose to each other or marry on that day. Another proverb says
"Valentin – prvi spomladin" ("Valentine — the first spring saint"),
as in some places (especially
White Carniola), Saint Valentine marks the beginning of spring.
Valentine's Day has only recently been celebrated as the day of love. The
day of love was traditionally March 12, the
Saint Gregory's day, or February 22,
Saint Vincent's Day. The patron of love was
Saint Anthony, whose day has been celebrated on June 13.
