Love it or hate it, Valentine's Day isn't a Hallmark holiday. The day became popular during the High Middle Ages - between the years 1000 and 1300 - when 'courtly love' was all the rage.
On the other hand, romantic movies are a creation of Hallmark, Hollywood and businessmen who have large money symbols as eyes (we joke). As Valentine's Day approaches, we thought we'd share some of our favorite love stories of all time.
