What Ancient Priests Did to Improve Fertility...

The history of St. Valentine's Day is shrouded in mystery.

Some believe it's to commemorate Valentine's death.

But others claim that the Christian church placed St. Valentine’s day in the middle of February to “Christianize” the pagan celebration of Lupercalia, a fertility festival dedicated to Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture, and the Roman founders, Romulus and Remus.

To begin the festival, Roman priests gathered at a sacred cave where the infants Romulus and Remus were believed to have been cared for by a she-wolf or lupa.

The priests would sacrifice a goat for fertility.  The goat's hide would be stripped and dipped in its blood. 

The priests would then take to the streets, gently slapping both women and crop fields with the goat hide.  TheRoman women believed the tradition would make them more fertile in the coming year so they were more than ok with getting slapped with a piece of bloody animal skin.

Later in the day, all the young women would place their names in a big urn. The city’s bachelors would each choose a name and become paired for the year with his chosen woman. These matches often ended in marriage. 

And they all lived happily ever after.  Who knows...
