Mythology Behind Valentine’s Day

Have you ever wondered what can be the history of Valentine’s Day? There are several theories about the origins of Valentine’s Day.

Initially, Valentine’s Day was a set day on the calendar that was merged with Lupercalia, a mid-February feast on the ancient Roman calendar. Now some historians believe that this is how Valentine’s Day came to be associated with love.

Whereas Lupercalia was a fertility festival involving a ceremony in which men and women were matched by picking names from a jar. Pope Gelasius proclaimed February 14 to be the First Feast Day of Saint Valentine in 496 A.D. It’s still up for dispute whether this was just a gesture to commemorate a Saint or a calculated attempt to Christianize the unpleasant pagan Lupercalia and it has been a day of celebration ever since—though it was typically more holy than romantic. Another belief was that in Ancient Greece, the marriage of the deity Zeus and the goddess Hera was commemorated with a mid-winter festival.

The Story of Saint Valentine

However, it is Saint Valentine, in whose honour, the world celebrates this day of love. The Martyred Saint Valentine was a Priest who continuously performed various marriages in secret as under Roman Emperor Claudius 2’s dominance no soldier was allowed to marry because he believed that married soldiers did not make good warriors.

Many young men couldn’t marry their soulmates and started losing hope in life, so, Saint Valentine who was known for wearing a ring with a Cupid on it as a symbol of love helped soldiers recognize him and he distributed paper hearts as a counterpart to greeting cards to remind those Christian soldiers of their passion for God.

When the emperor learned of his plans, he executed him on the 14th of February. Valentine left a parting message, “From Your Valentine,” before being decapitated. The world never talked less about him and it kept travelling and growing and people still celebrate Valentine’s sacrifice for Love and Devotion.
