Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulihsan.com

Q: I used to celebrate Valentines Day and never knew about it not being permissible,will I have sinned?


It was incorrect for you to have celebrated Valentines Day.Now that you have realised your mistake, seek forgiveness for the past and make a firm intention not to commit the same mistake in the future.
