An ancient custom of honouring the Roman God of Fertility has over the years gone through different connotations and today has become the day to celebrate love: Valentine’s Day. Beliefs about 14th of February range from it being the day birds propose to each other, to the day of Saint Valentine’s martyrdom. Even though customs and traditions on Valentine’s Day have changed and people have been celebrating it differently from one another, the essence of its festivity has remained the same over the past centuries.
Lupercalia, an ancient Roman festival involved some very bizarre rituals involving an animal sacrifice following blood rites, is the earliest record of celebrations on 14th February. By around 494 CE though, the Christian Church had appropriated this fertility rite as the Feast of Purification. Later on, February 14th was celebrated as the Feast of St. Valentine, honouring one or two early saints named Valentinus. Valentines Day was first associated with romantic love in 14th century, when the tradition of courtly love started to flourish. In 18th century, it evolved into an occasion for lovers to present flowers, confectionary and greeting cards to each other. Since the 19th century, mass produced greeting cards had stepped onto the scene. Recognized as a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance, this day is celebrated across the globe with gifts of chocolates, flowers, jewellery and romantic dinners.
A day to commemorate the dearest person in your life is the probably the most important day of your year, and if you have any doubts about that, you might be in deep trouble.
