The origins of Valentine's Day

The origins of Valentine's Day seem rather vague. There are several versions.

In ancient Roman tradition, people celebrated Lupercus, the god of fertility, on February 13, 14 and 15. During these celebrations, men pursued women with goatskins to ensure their fertility...

A second version attributes the origin of Saint Valentine's Day to the story of Valentine of Terni. This priest officiated in Rome. He was beheaded on February 14 269 for marrying Christian couples. This was forbidden by the Emperor, who wanted to force men to go to war.

Britain began celebrating lovers in the 14th century. Birds were thought to mate on February 14. The poet Otho de Grandson launched the Valentine's Day tradition by sending sweet nothings to his beloved on that day. The tradition was later adopted by the French court, before spreading to the rest of the world and to Luxembourg.
