Valentine's Day at wotever inc.

Valentine's Day is known to be the most romantic day of the year. Couples celebrate their love on this day. The holiday dates back to the ancient Roman festival/ritual called Lupercalia. This festival taking place in February was a pagan celebration of  fertility and the arrival of spring. This holiday helped make the month of February known as a month of romance. Other religions like Christianity started their own holiday in mid February (Valentine's day). Some believe the month was chosen for its Romantic history  while others believe it was placed there to assimilate the pagan festival. Valentine's day now holds both Christian and Roman traditions. During the 5th century, the Pope declared February 14th as the official Valentine's Day and thus banning the Pagan festival for its "un-Christian" values. Many myths surrounds Saint Valentine and to this day the backstory of the holiday and Saint are still vague.

Who Is Cupid Valentines Day Symbol Eros Greek Mythology

Another popular figure of Valentine's Day is Cupid. Originating again from the Roman mythology and also the Greek God of love Eros. Cupid (Eros) was know to be a handsome but mischievous God who played with both men and Gods by using his golden arrows to fuel love. It was only in the Hellenistic period (323 BC) that the image of Cupid changed to what it is today.
