    The History of Saint Valentine's Day

    Valentine's Day started in the time of the Roman Empire. In ancient Rome, February 14th was a holiday to honor Juno. Juno was the Queen of the Roman Gods and Goddesses. The Romans also knew her as the Goddess of women and marriage. The following day, February 15th, began the Feast of Lupercalia.

    The lives of young boys and girls were strictly separate. However, one of the customs of the young people was name drawing. On the eve of the festival of Lupercalia the names of Roman girls were written on slips of paper and placed into jars. Each young man would draw a girl's name from the jar and would then be partners for the duration of the festival with the girl whom he chose. Sometimes the pairing of the children lasted an entire year, and often, they would fall in love and would later marry.

    西洋情人節由來

    西洋情人節始於羅馬帝國時期,在古羅馬時代,2月14日是紀念專司婚姻和婦女之神Juno的假日, Juno也是羅馬眾神祇的皇后;而2月15日即展開Lupercalia宗教慶典.當時青年男女的生活是嚴格地被區隔開,然而,有一項屬於年青人的習俗叫「抽名字」.在Lupercalia慶典前夕,羅馬女孩的名字會被作成籤,放在瓶中,每一位男孩從瓶中抽出一位女孩的名字,兩人在慶典期間配成一對.有時候,這對年青人會持續交往,最終相戀並步入婚姻.在Claudius大帝二世統治期間,羅馬參與了許多血腥的戰役,民怨四起,暴君Claudius有一段時間找不到士兵加入他的軍團,他相信這是因為羅馬男子不願離開他們的情人或家人.於是,Claudius取消羅馬境內所有的婚姻和訂婚.善良的教士Saint Valentine和Saint Marius幫助基督教殉道者和秘密結婚的人,卻因此被逮補,羅馬行政首長判他被棍棒打死,並斬下首級.他殉教的日子,就是約西元270年的2月14日.當時,在羅馬有一項古老的習俗,在二月份的宗教慶典,紀念一位非基督教的神祈Lupercalia.慶典中有不同的儀式,像是把少女的名字放在盒中,由少男隨機抽籤. 早期羅馬基督教堂的牧師,致力於在慶典中消除異教的色彩,便以聖人的名字取代女孩的名字.由於Lupercalia慶典在二月中開始,牧師們便選擇在2月14日來慶祝Saint Valentine's 之日這個新慶典.之後男孩抽女孩名字作為情人,或抽聖人名字作為守護神的習俗並行,也由此而來.
