How did St. Valentine's Day come about?

According to one of the most popular versions of it, the roots of this holiday can be traced back to ancient Rome. There, on February 14, the Romans worshiped Goddess Juno, the patroness of all women, the goddess of marriage and motherhood. When exactly the next day (February 15th) began the Fertility Festival. This holiday was quite brutal, with Lupera Priests undressing, wearing only goatskin, running around the city, beating gracious women, thereby believing that it would yield fertility and easy delivery for women.

On February 14, the Catholic Church commemorates its two martyrs, Valentin of Rome and Valentin of Interamsk, who lived in the 3rd century. The Bishop of Intername was renowned for his healing abilities. He was arrested during the persecution of Christians, and after he refused to sacrifice to the pagan gods, he was tortured and then beheaded.

St. Valentine of Legends is a collective image that unites Valentine Intermansky and Valentine Romance. In the Middle Ages, his name began to be associated with the beloved character. The legend tells of a farewell letter with a declaration of love sent by Valentine before the death of her prisoner, Julia's daughter.

According to another version, Valentine handed the letter to the blind girl and she was miraculously healed from blindness. Following this legend, there was also a tradition of presenting Valentine's Day cards.
