From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum

Heart Day is an ancient Terran custom, that is celebrated by the Imperium and the Adeptus Mechanicus as well.[1]

According to Imperial historical records, it was a mysterious festival where Terran citizens signaled their compatibility by displaying gifts fashioned after the hearts of powerful foes they had presumably defeated. In modern times, Heart Day is celebrated within the Astra Militarum by allowing Guardsmen to hand out motivational cards, that represent their willingness to fight and die alongside each other.[1]



Heart Day is the Warhammer 40,000 universe's equivalent of Valentine's Day.[1]
