Some people consider that Valentine's Day is celebrated in the middle of February to memorialize the anniversary of Valentine's death or funeral.
Others claim that the Christian church may have planned to feast Valentine's day to 'Christianize' celebrations of the pagan Lupercalia festival.
In early Rome, February was the absolute beginning of spring.
And it was admitted a time for purification and forgiveness.
Lupercalia, on February 15, was a richness celebration committed to Faunus, the Roman god of cultivation, as well as to the Roman patrons Romulus and Remus.
To begin the celebration, brothers of the Luperci, a sect of Roman priests, would convene at the holy cave where the newborns Romulus and Remus, were considered to have been cared for by a she-wolf or Lupa.
The priests would then sacrifice a goat, for richness, and a dog, for emancipation.
The boys later sliced the goat's skin into layers.
Then soaked them in the blood and carried to the streets, smoothly slapping both women and fields of crops with the goatskin layers.
It may seem odd, but Roman women greeted being touched with the skins.
The reason was that they thought the layers would make them more prolific in the coming year.

According to the other story, all the young women in the town would put their names in a huge pot.
Any of the city's bachelors would then pick a name out of the urn and become a couple for the year with his adopted woman.
These matches usually settled in marriage.
Pope Gelasius named February 14, St. Valentine's Day approximately 498 A.D. The Roman 'lottery' system for passionate pairing was considered un-Christian and illegal.
Next, through the Middle Ages, it was generally believed in France and England that February 14 was the start of birds' mating season.
Which continued to the belief that the middle of February Valentine's Day should be a day for love.
