History of Valentine’s Day

Did you know, like most of our holidays, Valentine’s Day, was originally a Pagan celebration called Lupercalia.  Lupercalia, celebrated during mid-February,  involved a ritualized animal sacrifice and matchmaking, in hopes to keep evil spirits and infertility away.
Since there are 3 known Saint Valentines, it is unclear which the holiday is named after.  All we know, is that his stories make him seem like a sympathetic, heroic, and romantic person.
February 14th, was once believed to be the beginning of bird mating season in France and England.  This helped to add the idea of romance to Valentine’s Day.
Today there are many different ways to celebrate, but all usually involved sharing a note about our care and love for the person.

More information on Valentine’s Day can be found here.
More information on Lupercalia can be found here.
