Valentines Day PSA: You don't have to sacrifice a goat!
Updated: Jan 7, 2022
Ancient Romans celebrated a pastoral festival called Lupercalia from February 13th to the 15th. Lupercalia likely is derived from the Latin word "lupus", meaning "wolf". It was a very wolfy time, people. It was a fertility festival. It was Ancient Rome. Things probably got pretty wild! Some people think Valentine’s Day can be traced back to this ancient celebration. Luckily, we've moved past those ancient times and you don't have to sacrifice a goat to enjoy Valentine's Day.
Nowadays, we celebrate Valentine's Day by giving those we love a Valentine--a special card that expresses love, gratitude, and appreciation, and they can be serious or humorous. Either way, they are a joy to give and receive.
