14th February - Love Day (Valentine's Day) and Religion Islam

Valentine's Day History and Religion Islam:

All people are familiar with this day as the name of 'Love Day'. Origination of Valentine's Day from a "Lupercalia" (Roman festival) in the mid of February around 496AD. Some of the writers wrote 3rd century AD as an origin of Valentine's Day.

In recent days this Love Day was celebrated by Christians and nowadays people from all believe celebrates this day as like Christians. Even Muslims also celebrate this day as like Christians which isn't permitted in Religion 'Islam'. As a Muslim, I am worried about the people who are involved in these type of activities. Islam teaches us to love someone is a blessing of Allah (GOD) but the way how people celebrate Valentine's day isn't allowed and prohibited in religion Islam. All the unethical things are prohibited in Islam even in love or war.

Let's come to the day of Valentine:  

The lovebirds especially meet in parks and hotels for dating. The believers and followers of Valentine's Day first exchange flowers, gifts, and chocolates with each other. All day they spend together and do some unethical and immoral things. At the end of the day, they go back to their places and the whole story closes with the sunshine of the next morning. 
Loveday isn't celebrated by only married couples but unmarried couples are also deeply involved in it.
