Did you know Valentine’s Day originated in Rome? Each year the Romans would hold a festival in the middle of February called “Lupercalia”. This festival celebrated the coming of Spring, fertility and the pairing of women and men by lottery.
Today, Valentine’s Day is still celebrated in the middle of February and continues to involve the unity of couples as a day to celebrate their love. Whether you are parents getting to enjoy a night away from the kids or a workaholic getting to take the night off for a date, Valentine’s Day is about spending time with someone you love…or want to love.
