Lupercal 06/05/2010
 
One Festival which the Romans held around the time of St. Valentine's day was the Lupercalia. (engilsh: lupercal.) This was a festival of Fertility. The priests would sacrifice goats  and jump around waving strips of hide. Roman Women would hold out their hands because if they got hit by the hide, they would supposedly have a Baby that year. Pretty cool.
