Hey, did you know….
Historically, Valentine’s Day started as a pagan festival called Lupercalia. Activities included sacrificing animals and whipping women with animal skins. Shame traditions change, eh?
By the 14th century, they ditched the whipping etc and the Christians took over, declaring the date St Valentine’s Day.
Valentine was a right old romantic. Rumour has it that back in the year 270 AD, he defied Emperor Claudius II’s orders and secretly married couples to spare the husbands from war. Claudius, a bit harshly, had banned marriages with soldiers because he thought it distracted them from fighting.
