St. Valentine must’ve been a nifty guy to start the tradition of giving cards to loved ones on his birthday. Or flying around and shooting people with arrows to fall in love. Come to think of it, Valentine’s Day might be the holiday that people know the least about its origin. In fact, there are more than one St. Valentine. That brings us to our Question of the Week. Get it right and I’ll give you a kiss. Unless you’re a dude. The answer, as always, is after the jump.

How many St. Valentines are there?

Answer: Fourteen. The St. Valentine that we all know and love was buried on Feburary 14. Very little is actually known about his life, and the holiday that we celebrate on his day may be the result of a composite of several people.
