    Valentine’s Day - Origin & History

    Valentine Roses

    Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular holidays in the world today. According to estimates Americans spend about $20 billion on this holiday, becoming the second most expensive one next to Christmas. This day love and togetherness are being celebrated in various ways. Many will buy expensive jewelry and flowers for their darlings. Others will celebrate it as SAD dining alone and binging on self-gifted chocolates. (Single Awareness Day).
    But Valentine’s Day origin is not like you would think.
    It is an ancient Roman festival originally known as Lupercalia celebrated to honor pagan gods namely Lupercus (god of fertility), Juno (goddess of marriage and women) and Pan (god of nature).
    The men sacrificed a goat and a dog, then flogged the women with the hides of the animals. The brutal feast included a matchmaking lottery, in which young men drew the names of women from a jar. The couple would then be paired for the duration of the festival — or longer, if the match was right.
    Emperor Claudius II executed two men — both named Valentine —  on Feb. 14 of different years in the 3rd century A.D. Their martyrdom was honored by the Catholic Church with the celebration of St. Valentine's Day. No one exactly knows who St. Valentine was. His story is based on legend.
    In the 5th century Pope Gelasius I linked St. Valentine's Day with Lupercalia to rout out the pagan rituals. But it remained a day of fertility and love. 
    Chaucer and Shakespeare romanticized St. Valentine’s Day, and it became popular throughout Britain and the rest of Europe. Handmade paper cards became tokens in the Middle Ages.
    In 1913, mass production of valentines began by Hallmark Cards of Kansas City, Mo

    With the lockdown in place February 14 is going to be a bit different this year. But whether you're together or apart this Valentine’s Day, or if you want to make it special, you can still have a date day at home and enjoy yourselves. It falls on a Sunday this year, which makes it perfect to celebrate.

    Thank you

    „Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

    Love never fails.
