    Great article. For most of us a history lesson is a bitter pill to swallow and the only reason most of us ever choke down history is because we are usually held at gun point in history class. Yet, reading this was not only a breeze, it was a fun and enlightening trip into the past. If only history class was like this! I love learning and this article made learning fun. I’ve heard a few odds and ends pieces about Lupercalia but now I know the true story behind Valentines day and its predecessor Lupercalia in much more detail. I’m actually a little sad that the history lesson ended, I could have easily read on for a few more pages. This was a very entertaining look into “the truth”. And lord knows this day and age the truth is in short supply.

    “Otherwise, this font I’m typing would be called “Times Remun.”….
    Great line.

    Once (about 12 years ago) I went out with a soon-to-be wife for a Valentine’s Day
    It was a Thai restaurant, and at the end of the meal, a Valentine-themed Thai dessert was handed out to each couple, to share.
    My soon-to-be-wife and I weren’t given one.
    It was in the old days: the days before the homosexuals had real love, and real marriage, when they were still, according to some, only having perverted sordid sexual encounters in public toilets (like Republican senators do).
    If it was now-a-days, I could probably sue those Thais for ’emotional torment’ or discrimination.

    I don’t ‘do’ Valentine’s nor Christmas.
    Every single day of the year, not just the days ‘Big Commerce’ appropriate, is an occasion to give a wee something to the people you love: a smile, a flower, a hug, a Porsche, $50,000.

    Thanks for the history lesson, Dr Suzy.

    I must say this is my favorite blog so far! I love knowing history and truth to things. But even though I know like most american holidays, they are commercialized but had no idea that the so told origin of St.Valentine was a sham! And yes, true I love that sugar coated morsel of a story, but Lupercalia is actually MUCH more of and interesting fact base and story! Not to mention, sounds a lot more more pleasurable and enjoyable for all! As much as we love that idea of tortured true romance and fake news the truth must always prevail! I just loved this piece of writing gold!! Thank you Dr.Suzy for always cutting though the bullshit with a knife of wisdom and words, kindness and pleasure.Can’t wait for next weeks! xo

    Dr. Susan, I agree with V-Day being totally commercialized. I also feel the “pressure” you speak of, as a guy, to like really be romantic and spend a lot of money I don’t have. I like the sound of Lupercalia much more. ;)

    Dr. Block this is a wonderful narrative and a great overview of both Valentine’s Day as well as Lupercalia. Indeed there are many instances of the church (and the ruling class) co-opting, rewriting or outright banning certain rituals and celebrations, Valentine’s day is another fine example of this instance. Quite often people will engage in holiday traditions without digging beyond the surface or knowing about the muted history.
