How Valentine’s Day began?
It dates back to Roman times where on the eve of festival Lupercal,in honor of the goddess Juno Februata, the names of young women wer put into a box and names were drawn by lot. The boys and girls who were matched would be considered partners during the festival, which sometimes lasted for year or sometimes lifetime.
Emperor Claudius II , a cruel ,bloody ruler, stopped all this….as Claudius was having a difficult time getting soldiers to join the military. He believed the reason was because Roman men didn’t want to leave their loves or families. As a result, Claudius cancelled all marriages and engagements in Rome.
There was a Christian priest named Valentine who defended love in the empire. Valentine began to secretly marry couples despite the Emperor’s orders. When Emperor Claudius was informed of these ceremonies, Valentine was sent to prison where he remained until his death on February 14 in the year 270.
As a result of this a Valentines day began to be celebrated.
