Did you know approximately 150 million Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged annually making it a close second to the holiday card exchange on Christmas?
Valentine’s Day started as a party called Lupercalia in the Roman era.
Today Valentine’s Day is still celebrated, and some continue the party tradition to this day.
Building Your Valentine’s Day Party
As with the history of the Roman Empire, Valentine’s Day was a celebration to honor the agricultural god which would bless them throughout the year.
