Curiosity attack. I just looked up the history of Valentine’s Day and discovered that it is rooted in an ancient Roman fertility celebration called Lupercalia. (I think I hope this is true, lol.)
Apparently, it was reinvented by Pope Gelasius somewhere around 496, when he declared February 14 to be St. Valentine’s Day.
Maybe I rely on Google far too much but I love indulging my curiosity and being able to search for anything at any time…. I’m a big fan of the doodles, too! Enjoy.
Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? Any sweet memories to share?
