In ancient Rome, the festival of Lupercalia was considered as the fertility celebration observed on February 13th through the 15th. February was thus considered the beginning of spring, as if the festival was supposed to ward off evil spirits and purify the city -- releasing health, love, hope and fertility. But again, the Christian and ancient Roman traditions were combined in 496 AD. And it was said that Pope Gelasius turned the festival of Lupercalia into a Christian Feast Day to be celebrated on February 14th and dedicated it to the priest, who was then recognized as a saint, St. Valentine. Thus, from here Valentine's Day was officially born.
