Why do we celebrate Valentine’s Day?
Valentine’s Day on 14th February is a Saint’s day, but its roots lie in the Lupercalia festival, which in Ancient Rome was celebrated on 15th of the month.
At the time, the Church deemed these fertility rituals somewhat indecorous as people stripped themselves of their clothes, sacrificed animals and symbolically lashed women as they believed it would stimulate fertility.
The story of Saint Valentine is wrapped in myths and legends, and there are in fact several saints of the same name, but the Roman Valentine is the most evocative. The legend tells of a priest who opposed Claudio II’s law that prohibited soldiers from marrying, as the emperor wanted them to dedicate their lives exclusively to the military.
As a result, Valentine of Rome married them in secret. However, when his clandestine operations were discovered, he was sent to the guillotine, thus positioning Valentine in history as a symbol of love. It was easy for people to continue celebrating fertility as they could simply associate it with this 14th February legend, and as such, the Lupercalia festival was replaced.
However, the Valentine’s Day we know and love today first came to pass during the Middle Ages in England and France, due to courtly love. Then, during the XIX century, the festivities were taken over by romanticism, at which point Valentine’s cards became all the rage and the trend began to spread across the world.
