History of Valentine’s Day
People believe that the origins of Valentine’s Day are deeply rooted in connection to the Catholic Church in 496 AD. Its deep connection highlights a prominent figure of Catholic Christianity history, Saint Valentine. It’s considered a means to potentially replace the brutal Pagan Lupercalia festival. The said festival was a form of homage in the Greek religion and celebrated at the start of the spring every year. The celebration took place on February 15 where a dog and goat were sacrificed to carry out further homage practices.
The sacrifice of both animals was a form of symbolization to highlight purity and fertility. After the sacrifice, the goat hide was turned into strips, placed inside the sacrificial blood, and then the crops and women were painted with them. Despite all the traditional knowledge and information about the Pagan festival, many still believe that the romanticizing element came was associated with February 14th due to the martyrdom of one of the priests of the Catholic Church, St. Valentine.
He was martyred by Claudis II Gothicus in 270 CE, who was the Roman emperor at the time. The stories involve many patron saints and the patron saints day associating them with Valentine. Various folks talk about St. Valentines and the “valentines” aka messengers that people sent to their loved ones during times of war. Some traditions believe that the priest was marrying couples secretly to prevent them from going to war, while other stories keep varying. It was not until the 1400s that February 14 was largely recalled and celebrated as a romantic day.
Despite confusing knowledge of the origins, people started writing love letters and handwritten notes to their loved ones, which they called “Valentines.” During the 1800s, mass production of Valentine’s cards became popular, and people started making a tradition of offering candy, flowers, roses, and nearly anything that could symbolize feelings of love and affection.
However, in our modern society, Valentine’s Day (February 14th) has become more popular and inclusive of family and friends. Today, people not only show affection to their significant other but also their other loved ones such as parents, children, and more.
While Valentine’s Day is celebrated on February 14th, women celebrate Galentine’s Day on February 13th with their female friends. It will surprise you to know that the origins of Galentine’s Day are based on the fictional TV show “Parks and Recreation.” The show’s famous character Leslie Knope, played by Amy Poehler, popularized Galentine’s Day as an event to celebrate on the day before Valentine’s Day.
In the TV show, during 2010, it was considered a night out and brunch style outing where women tend to leave their husbands and boyfriends for a day to get together. The fun February 13th celebration was a reminder that regardless of your relationship status, your female friends and besties carried a significant bond with you in your lifetime. In simple words, it’s a traditional celebration nowadays that emphasizes the need to celebrate the presence of female friends in our lives.
