What is Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is an opportunity for people in Canada to tell somebody that they love them in a romantic way. It falls on February 14, the name day of two saints, St Valentine of Rome and St Valentine of Terni. In pre-Christian times, the middle of February was a time of pagan fertility festivals in Europe and allegedly the time when birds chose a mate.
Where Did Valentine’s Day Come From?
Valentine’s Day has its origins as an ancient agriculture and human fertility festival. From February 13 to 15, the Romans celebrated the feast of Lupercalia.
Lupercalia was a fertility festival in honor of Lupa, the wolf who was said to have suckled Romulus and Remus (whom founded the city of Rome in 753 B.C., according to legend). This festival was also dedicated to Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture.
This was the season to start sowing seeds and to hope for a fertile year of crops. The link between the Lupercalia, fertility, and romance is evident in the festivities that occurred during the celebrations. The Roman festival involved drunk young men running through the streets naked, women being smeared in animal blood, and unusual fertility rites. Ever heard the dating phrase, “being hit on”? In this case, men literally hit on women by whipping them with the hides of the animals they had just sacrificed.
Apparently, many women were willing participants, lining up for the festival, believing this would make them fertile. Young men also drew the names of women from a jar. The couple would lie together during the festival, in an effort to conceive.
When the Roman Empire became Christian, it evolved into a “Christianized” form of the festival of Lupercalia. The church honored St. Valentine—who was martyred at this time. However, much of the marriage and fertility traditions from the old ways persisted.
