The origins of Valentine’s Day trace back to the ancient Roman celebration of Lupercalia. Held on February 15, Lupercalia honored the gods Lupercus and Faunus, as well as the legendary founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus.

It wasn’t called “Valentine’s Day” until a priest named Valentine came along. Valentine disobeyed Emperor Claudius II’s decree that soldiers remain bachelors as Valentine was a romantic at heart. Claudius handed down this decree believing that soldiers would be distracted and unable to concentrate on fighting if they were married or engaged. Valentine defied the emperor and secretly performed marriage ceremonies. Valentine was put to death on February 14, as a result of his defiance.

As Christianity spread through Rome, priests moved Lupercalia from February 15 to February 14 and renamed it St. Valentine’s Day to honor Saint Valentine. After Valentine’s death, he was named a saint.
