From the beginning of time to love wasn’t easy, in fact it can be one of the toughest and most memorable things a person can go through, as it shows here in the roots of Valentine’s Day. This day dates back to the pre-roman times; back then this day was called Lupercalia. This was a festival that lasted from February 13 to February 15, to avert evil spirits and to cleanse the city.
This was because they believed it release’s good health and fertility.
Next, Latin Christian’s choose mid-February for St Valentine’s Day in order to Christianizes the celebration. However, no one really knows exactly who St Valentine is because there are a couple Valentines in Christian history. One was sentenced to death for preforming illegal marriage ceremony’s after empress Claudius banned marriage of roman soldiers because she believed that a single soldier was a better soldier, then one who was married. This Valentine gave his life for the love of others.
After that, Pope Gelasius declared February 14 as Valentines Day in the 5 century AD. It wasn’t until the 1300’s, that the holiday would forever be related to love. Back then people believe that February 14 was the day the birds started to mate, bringing love chirps to the air.
Later, in the 15th century the first valentine’s cards began to appear and by the 17 century people in Britain started their valentine’s traditions and soon after America caught on. This lead to the first mass prediction of Valentine’s Day cards in the 1840’s.
Finally to the lovers who love so bravely this can be one of the best days to show that special person how much they are truly loved.. This holiday can go down in history of the sweetness’s that love can bring to a person in a relationship that is at the peak of its best of its days in its relationship. However, this holiday can lead to loneliness and confusion for those of you fighting to love, as we learn from Valentine myself who died for the sake of love. This proves love hasn’t been easy from the beginning of time.
Love truly is battle field of love’s amazing highs and lows.
