That day you celebrate romance....roses, candy, cupid...... SAILING!
Valetines Day's origins is a bit muddled, no one has really been able to pinpoint the exact origin, though a good start is ancient Rome due to the fact that they celebrated the feast of Lupercalia between the 13th - 15th February. In short, goats and dogs were sacrificed and women were whipped with their hides.
These Roman 'romantics' were drunk and naked with young women lining up to be whipped as they believed it would make them fertile! This brutal feast involved a lottery in which men would draw young womens names from a jar, coupling them up for the entire time and longer if it was a 'good match'...
