Valentine’s Day is not something born in darkness by large shopping centers.
Let’s go back to the origins of this event, when did it begin?
Origin of Valentine’s Day
Contrary to what many think, Valentine´s day is not something invented secretly by large shopping centres. It is a celebration of pagan origin (native religion of Europe) held by the Romans as the day of Lupercalia (god of fertility and agriculture).
During Valentine´s Day took place an important celebration in honour of the god Lupercus. There were dances and games, one of those games was to write down on paper the name of the favourite couple… the result was an engagement for one year which often lasted.
After the arrival of the church in Rome and due to the resistance of the people to end the celebration they decided to rename it Valentine´s Day. They prohibited couples so many young people choose to send instead romantic notes. Those notes during the centuries became increasingly popular. Who has not played the game of love notes in the school during the Valentine’s Day?
