Valentine’s Day & its Origin.
But first, do you know where Valentine’s Day actually came from?
This question raised curiosity within our team as we were crafting this Valentine’s gift guide. The answer is still unclear as it was an influence of various events dating back to ancient beliefs and festivals. Pope Gelasius declared 14th February Valentine’s Day at the end of the 5th Century, following the outlaw of the festival Lupercalia, possibly pre-Roman Empire.
It wasn’t until much later that this date became associated with love. It was commonly believed that 14th February was the start of birds’ mating season – contributing to the ideas that Valentine’s Day should be a day for romance. The first record of this association was in the 1375 poem, “Parliament of Foules,” by English poet Geoffrey Chaucer.
Valentine’s Day gained popularity across the world and different cultures. This day is now, not only celebrates romantic love but love in general – with cards and gifts being gifted to friends, teachers, sweethearts, teachers and siblings too!
