The History of Valentine’s Day
Where did Valentine’s Day come from? The earliest traces of the holiday lie in an Ancient Roman festival called Lupercalia. Lupercalia was an important festival: the festival of fertility. To celebrate, priests would take the hide of a sacrificed goat and gently slap women and crops to bring them fertility in the coming year.
Thankfully, the goat hides have been left in years past. In the Middle Ages, February 14th was thought to signal the beginning of birds’ mating season. English poet Geoffrey Chaucer is often noted in the evolution of Valentine’s Day. Some say he is the first to associate love with St. Valentine’s Day in his poems “The Parlement of Foules” and “The Complaint of Mars.” Shakespeare, of course, popularized this connection as well.
Valentine’s Day as we know it began to be celebrated in the UK around the 17th century. It started in the US around the early 18th century. It’s become a special day to tell our loved ones just how much they mean to us. Many people exchange cards, chocolates, flowers, and, of course, jewelry as tokens of affection. Valentine’s Day is mostly celebrated in the UK, US, Canada, Mexico, France, and Australia, but more and more people across the world are joining in on this Day of Love!
