Did you know Valentine’s Day is rooted in the celebration of fertility also known as the festival of Lupercalia and was actually celebrated on February 15th before the year 496. Pope Gelasius then changed it to February 14th and declared it as a Christian feast day calling it St. Valentine’s Day. There are so many stories and legends written about how Valentine’s Day came to life stemming from both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. These stories include one saint named Valentine who kept marrying young couples against the wishes of the Emperor. The other story includes a story about a saint named Valentine who was imprisoned and fell in love with his jailer’s daughter. He wrote her love letters signing off with “From Your Valentine” – whichever of the legends is true, it made Saint Valentine one of the most popular saints in all of England and France. Other stories tie Valentine’s Day to the beginning of birds’ mating season.
As interesting as the history may unfold to us, in this day and age, Valentine’s Day is simply known as the day of love and is especially celebrated among couples.
February is also known as Creative Romantic Month. So, romance and love are not limited to February 14th.
