History of Valentine’s Day
As popular as it is, history does not give us any guaranteed facts about the origins of St Valentines Day. The association between romance and mid-February goes back to the pagan festival known as Lupercalia, which involved rituals to bestow fertility for the coming year. In an attempt to Christianise this once pagan festival, Pope Gelasius recast it as a Christian feast day sometime in the 5th century and 14th February became known as St. Valentine’s Day.
Legend has it that one of the many documented Saint Valentines was a Roman priest who lived in the 3rd century. Father Valentine defied an empire-wide ban on marriage and continued to marry couples in secret. He was caught and sentenced to death. It is believed that while he was jailed, couples that he had previously married, sent flowers and notes of gratitude. It is said that he fell in love with his jailers daughter on the 14th February, the day of his execution. On that day he passed a love note to the girl signed “from your Valentine” and so the tradition began.
