I usually look to Wikipedia for that kind of information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentine%27s_Day

I think so.  And according to that article, they took it off the 'official' calendar because of the three known Valentines, they weren't sure who they were celebrating anymore.

I was born/raised Catholic, and even taught Sunday school for a bit.  There were no celebrations for St. Valentine that I can remember.  Then again, I wasn't one who went to daily mass and celebrated every feast for every saint, which is probably 20+ per month.

Today are the feasts for Saint Cyril and Saint Methodius.

Cyril's early work on an alphabet structure is said to have lead to adaptation into the Cyrillic alphabet used in Russian/Slavic languages.

But...without looking at a calendar, I'd never have known.
