"The history of Valentine's Day is as epically murky, mysterious and unexplainable as the essence of true love itself. It's conjectured that the concept of V-Day goes all the way back to the Roman mid-February fertility festival of Lupercalia. From there, the hearty tale becomes convoluted with the martyrdom of a pair of saints, allegedly both named Valentine, by a 3rd century Roman emperor, the duo executed apparently on February 14th. It is fully known that a Catholic Pope proclaimed February 14th as Saint Valentine's Day in 496; but this day was more about Christian spirituality than anything romantic. The idea of Valentine's Day as a day for lovers, and potential romantic partners, slowly evolved, mainly in Great Britain - to the point where V-Day is now celebrated with cupids, cards, candies, plush toys, gifts, meals and song and dance, as we know it today. It's come a long way, baby.
