Valentine’s Day origin
No matter if head over heels, happy single, recently divorced, in a complicated relationship or just patiently waiting for ‘the right one’ to show up in your life, Valentine’s Day is a day with a lot of mixed feelings. Some love it, some hate it, and some just don’t care about a day as commercialised as Valentine’s Day. Each year on Valentine’s Day, approximately 150 million Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged while many treat their valentine with candy, a gift or flowers. On a day as commercial as Valentine’s Day, people often forget what this day is actually about. Considering the fact that nobody really knows what this day is really about anyway, I guess we’re all forgiven.
Me being interested in the story behind, I had a look into this “day of love” searching for information about the origin of Valentine’s Day. It seems that Valentine’s Day has a pretty ironic history.
The holiday’s roots are in the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia, an ancient Roman festival celebrated annually on the 15th of February intended to secure fertility and keep out evil. The festival survived into Christian times after which Pope Gelasius declared the 14th of February to be St. Valentine’s Day. Until today, it’s unclear which St. Valentine the pope intended to honour. There were at least three early Christian saints by that name with one being a priest in Rome, another a bishop in Terni while of a third St. Valentine all information available is that he met his end in Africa. Ironic as can be, all three “symbols of love”, were said to have been martyred on February 14th.
There are a few legends available, though, and of them involves a Cupido type of priest called Valentine who served during the third century in Rome. Emperor Claudius II, in this period, decided that single men made better soldiers than those with a wife or a family. The emperor outlawed marriage for young men, a decision Valentine disagreed to, the reason he continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. Of course, his honourable acts of love couldn’t be kept secret followed by the emperor putting Valentine to death.
Other legends tell a story about Valentine winding a first “Valentine” greeting in which he wrote: “From your Valentine”. Others believe that it was the Christian church who created Valentine’s Day in an effort to “Christianize” the pagan celebration of Lupercalia as described before. Some trust the legend in which Valentine’s Day is celebrated to commemorate the anniversary of Valentine’s death which probably occurred around A.D. 270.
Over the centuries, Valentine’s Day evolved and it was in the 18th century that people started to exchange handmade cards on Valentine’s Day. For a while, people used Valentine’s Day to announce their secret love, too shy to approach the person in real life.
During the past century, the Valentine cards featuring cupids and hearts became a common tradition on Valentine’s Day. Today, 25% of all cards sent each year, consist of these cheesy Valentine cards. A booming commercial success for those greeting card companies, as well as candy shops, gift shops, as well as restaurants.
