What is the real story of Valentine’s Day?

The origins of Valentine’s Day are very disputed, but the most common explanations are narrowed down to the festival of Lupercalia and the martyr of St. Valentine. Lupercalia was a pagan fertility festival in Rome. Ancient Romans would party and purify themselves through rituals. Every year on February 15th a male and a female were paired up as partners and many ended up marrying each other. To Christianize the event, it was replaced by Valentine’s Day by Pope Gelasius I.

Others debate that the day comes from Christian martyrs that were killed by the Roman Emperor Claudius II Gothicus. The emperor struggled to recruit young soldiers because they did not want to leave their loved ones. Claudius banned any further marriage or engagement in Rome to encourage more people to join the army. However, during this time St. Valentine secretly married young people until he was caught. He was sentenced to death for his treason to the emperor. St. Valentine was beaten and beheaded on February 14 around the year 270 AD.

Centuries later, societies still blindly celebrate this event annually by exchanging candies, flowers, and other gifts between loved ones. It is a special occasion worthy of a special gift, which is why you should get your familiars a gnome. Some say they bring good luck and protection which is something everyone needs and appreciates.
