The Feast of Lupercalia / How Valentine's Day Started

We all know that Valentine's Day is a day to celebrate love, romance and even friendship, but did you know that Valentine's Day got its start as a much darker festival? Nobody knows for sure when Valentine's Day started and what it looked like but we do know that back in the times of ancient Rome, from February 13-15, Romans celebrated the feast of Lupercalia (check out this Lupercalia Valentine's Day t-shirt or maybe this one suits you better).
