The celebration on this day became an established tradition in England by the mid-14th century.
Valentine Connected With Roman Festival
The Lupercalia festival is one of the most ancient festivals in the world, dating back to when Gods were still worshipped. It is a fertility festival that lasts for several days.
The festival has its roots in paganism and was celebrated by ancient Romans in February in honor of Lupercus, the god of crops and fertility.
However, the Christian church later adopted these festivities to commemorate two martyrs who died on this day, Saint Valentine and Saint Fabian.

Valentine’s Day comes with a lot of pressure to find the perfect gift or card to show your partner how much you care for them. If you are in a long-distance relationship, Valentine’s can be extra challenging. It can be hard to think of what will make your true soulmate happy over the internet or phone line.
As we remember a popular saying from the TV series “Modern Family”, What are fears? Do they keep us alive or do they keep us from living? And this saying is very important to consider in the time span we are going through.
We need to understand the meaning of fear. The fear of the pandemic is reasonable to an extent because it creates self-awareness within you, but overthinking due to fear is not good. You need to minimize your fear with the right precautionary steps.
The distance between partners can make Valentine’s Day tricky, but it doesn’t mean it has to be. Sending a thoughtful gift is an easy way to show your partner you care. Here are some presents that might work for you:
- A surprise visit.
