Valentine's day is right around the corner and you don't want to be caught without a thoughtful, interesting and perfect gift for your special someone. Afterall, this is the only day of the year dedicated to showing this person how much you appreciate them (if you don't already do this everyday).
Did you know that the origins of Valentines, like all really fun holidays, were efforts to Christianize an originally pagan tradition? Valentine's day is no different. In the middle of February, they used to celebrate Lupercalia, which was a fertility festival dedicated to Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture and the Roman founder gods, Romulus and Remus. They believed that the rituals they did during this time would make women more fertile for the next year. Another really interesting thing that they would do is put all the young women's names in a big urn and the city's bachelors would choose a name and become paired with the woman for the year. Many of these matches ended in marriage.Today, February is still the month of love. It is a happy respite for some time without a celebration since the New Years hullabaloo and Australia day.
