Why Celebrate Valentine’s Day?

Valentine’s Day is a holiday that sparks joy and celebrates love in all its forms, making it a charming occasion to commemorate. While some may dismiss it as a commercialised event, there are plenty of reasons to embrace the festivities and make the most out of this day. It’s a perfect excuse to show appreciation for the special people in your life, whether it’s your partner, friends, or family. The relaxed atmosphere surrounding Valentine’s Day encourages you to take a moment and express your affection genuinely. It’s a chance to indulge in heartfelt gestures, like surprising someone with flowers, writing a personal note, or simply spending quality time together. So, why not embrace the love in the air on Valentine’s Day and spread some cheer with a relaxed and light-hearted approach

Where Does Valentine’s Day Come From?

Well, Valentine’s Day has its roots in ancient Rome, where a fertility festival called Lupercalia was celebrated between February 13th and 15th. It wasn’t all hearts and roses back then! Lupercalia involved some pretty wild rituals, like sacrificing animals and whipping women (yikes!). As time moved on and Christianity spread, the holiday got a little makeover, when, in the 5th century, Pope Gelasius I decided to replace Lupercalia with a more romantic celebration. He named it after St. Valentine, a Christian martyr who had gained a reputation for secretly performing weddings for Roman soldiers. Valentine’s Day was born.
