Did You Know About The Dark History Of Valentine Day…Read On

The earliest existence of the Valentine’s Day originates from the ancient Roman festival called Lupercalia, which was originally celebrated from February 13 to February 15th. This festival was said to be promoting fertility in women but the way they went about it, could make any priest cry.

During the fertility ritual a goat and a dog were slaughtered to act as a purification offering. After the sacrifices were done with, the men went on and dipped their clothing into this now sacred blood. After that, they got naked and took to the streets, while in the streets they would slap the village women with their clothes which had blood. Funny thing, is that the women welcomed this fact because they thought it would actually make them fertile.

The story goes on until the one day a priest called St. Valentine decided to defy an order by the then Roman Emperor, who had outlawed all marriages. St. Valentine used to perform marriages against the Emperor’s decree. Later, he was sent to prison, where he befriended a certain prison warden’s daughter. St. Valentine is said to be the first person to send the first Valentine’s Day card. The card was signed ‘’From Your Valentine’’. And that marked the start of the modern day Valentine’s.

In later years after Christianity spread out in modern Roman, the entire ritual was abolished and a better and less sacrificial version of it was acquired. This better version was popularized by the Shakespeare Love story featuring Romeo and Juliet, in the following years.

In present day, Valentine’s Day has grown into now a billion dollar industry. But on the flipside, Valentine’s Day has no romantic history despite common knowledge.
