The history of Valentine's Day. February has been a month of romance forever. St. Valentine's Day, is a Christian holiday mixed with some Roman tradition. Saint Valentine become associated with this ancient rite after becoming a martyr. Unfortunately, Valentinus was the name of 3 individuals and all of whom were martyrs. (sidenote: do not name next child Valentinus)
One story says that one of the three Valentine's was in third century Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that married men made bad soldiers. What happened is that Claudius outlawing marriage! This made Valentine very upset that he defied the Emperior and performed marriages in secret. When Claudius found out he was outraged and ordered Valentine arrested and put to death.
One story claims that Valentine actually sent the first "valentine" greeting himself. When inprisoned he began a relationship with his jailor's daughter. Valentine would send many handwritten letters to his love. The story goes that Valentine would end each letter, "from your Valentine". Regardless of what story you believe St. Valentines' Day is easily one of the most popular day and celebrated in Europe today.
Now, why do we celebrate St. Valentine's Day in February? Well some people believe that Valentine's death or burial was celebrated in the middle of February in or around 270 A.D. While some believe that Valentine's Day is celebrated in the middle of February in an attempt to "christianize" celebrations with the pagan Lupercalia festival. Romans considered February the official beginning of spring. Houses were swept and cleaned thoroughly and salt was sprinkled everywhere. Lupercalia, which began February 15, was a fertility festival dedicated to Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture.
To begin the festival, members of the Luperci, an order of Roman priests, would gather at the sacred cave where the infants Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome, were believed to have been raised by a female wolf.. The priests would then sacrifice a goat and a dog. The boys from the city then would take the sliced strips of goat hide, dipped them in the blood of the sacrificed animals and then took to the streets, slapping both women and fields of crops with the strips. The Roman women loved being touched with the strips because it was believed the strips would make them more fertile. After the festivities the young women in the city would place their names in a large vat and the city's single men would choose the women and the new couple would be engaged to marry. Pope Gelasius declared February 14 St. Valentine's Day around 498 A.D. The Roman "lottery" system for romantic pairing was deemed un-Christian and outlawed.
The Greeting Card Association says an estimated one billion valentine cards are sent each year, making Valentine's Day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year rivaling only Christmas.
