Valentine’s Day 13 February 2010

DID YOU KNOW?

The history of Valentine’s Day goes back to ancient Rome and the Lupercalia festival. It was celebrated on February 15 in honour of gods Lupercus and Faunus as well as Romulus and Remus – the legendary founders of Rome.

One of the Lupercalia celebrations was an abundant feast and another – performed on February 14 – a name drawing ceremony. During this ceremony each young man would draw the name of a young woman and they became partners for the time of the festival.

At that time, the festival wasn’t called “Valentine’s Day”. When Emperor Claudius II passed a decree according to which soldiers couldn’t get married, a priest named Valentine disobeyed the new law and secretly performed marriage ceremonies. In consequence, he was sentenced to prison until his death on February 14 around AD 270.

Before his execution, Valentine is said to have written a farewell letter to his sweetheart girl which he signed “from your Valentine”. That letter was the first Valentine card ever and an inspiration to all of us who ever since have been sending “Valentines” to our beloved ones.

After his death, Valentine was named a saint and when Christian priests moved Lupercalia form the 15 to the 14 of February, they also changed the name of the festival. Since then it is called St. Valentine’s Day to honor the romantic and brave Saint Valentine.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
