The History of Valentine's Day and other such nonsense

Postby KarenKramer » Tue Feb 03, 2009 11:34 am

The The History of Valentine's day and other such nonsense seems to have several different roots in history.

It is originally believed to have begun with the Roman festival of Lupercalia. Lupercalia, observed February 13 through 15, was a festival to honor two mythical orphaned twins, Romulus and Remus, and the female wolf who suckled them. In Roman tradition, the twins were considered the founders of Rome.
