History of the Feast of Love
The history of the holiday is not entirely clear, there are many legends. It is said that the feast is probably derived from the feast of Lupercalia, which was celebrated in ancient Rome. Tickets with the girls' names were placed in the "urn of love" in the early evening of this day. The young men were pulling tickets, and the girl whose name they had taken out was to become their love the following year.
Another legend claims that Valentine's Day became known thanks to the priest Valentine. The ruler of Rome forbade engagement and marriage to his soldiers because he was afraid he would leave the army. However, Valentine's Day resisted the rulers and secretly married the couples. He was arrested and executed on February 14.
Feast of Lupercalia and Feast of Martyrdom Valentine's Day merged into one and a romantic holiday of lovers was created, celebrated on February 14.
