It seems AI has got a "sweetheart"...

Valentine's Day, the most romantic holiday, is celebrated in most countries of the world on February 14. This day for more than one and a half thousand years, people confess their love to each other. 
Curiously, the celebration of St. Valentine's memory was originally established as a homage to his martyrdom, without any connection with the patronage of lovers. Gradually, St. Valentine's day turned from a Catholic holiday into a secular one. Many people celebrate this holiday with pleasure, although it is not listed in the calendar among official holidays. 

Do you know the story about Valentine's day? It seems that DreamBot knows some facts! 

USER: Hello! Tell me something about Valentine's day!
DREAMBOT: There are many legends associated with the name of St. Valentine. The most beautiful and romantic of them is the story of a Christian preacher who in 269 married legionaries of the Roman Empire with their lovers, despite the ban of Emperor Claudius II.Each country has its own traditions. For example, Valentine's Day in the United States began to be celebrated since 1777. The tradition of giving gifts on this day has grown stronger every year and for some has become quite a successful business. At the beginning of the XIX century, Americans had a custom-to give their loved ones on this day figures from marzipan. And marzipans in those days were considered a great luxury.
