February 14th

Originally, celebrated in honour of the Juno, Queen of the Roman Gods, February 14th has always been a lucky day for love. Juno was also regarded as the Goddess of Women and Marriage, and her holiday was observed on the eve of the annual Roman fertility festival called the Feast of Lupercalia which was dedicated to the Gods of Agriculture, Lupercus and Faunus along with Romulus and Remus – the legendary founders of Rome.
