Valentines Day is celebrated on the 14th February and commemorates the death of St valentine

In the year 498 Pope Gelasius made February the 14th Valentines Day.

It is also thought that the early Christian church may have been the originators of Valentines Day because they wanted a Christian festival celebration in February to stop people celebrating the pagan Roman festival of Lupercalia.

This celebrated the beginning of spring which ancient Romans saw as a time for new beginnings and purification. As part of the celebrations houses would be spring cleaned and offerings would be given to Faunus the God of fertility and agriculture, and to Romulus and Remus who were the founders of Rome.
