The origins of this festival of candy and cupids are dark and bloody. No one knows the exact origin of the holiday, one place to start is ancient Rome. Those Wild And Crazy Romans celebrated the feast of Lupercalia. The men sacrificed a goat and a dog, then whipped women with the hides of the animals they had just slain.
The Roman Valentine festivals were drunk and naked. Their fete included a matchmaking lottery in which young men drew the names of women from a jar. The couple would then be coupled up for the duration of the festival.
WHAT! All I ever got was a paper Valentine and a box of candy...
