How SA Musicians Spent Their Valentines In 2020 – Valentine’s Day, also called St. Valentine’s Day, has origins in the Roman festival of Lupercalia, held in mid-February.
According to Encyclopedia Brittanica, the festival, which celebrated the coming of spring, included fertility rites and the pairing off of women with men by lottery.
At the end of the 5th century, Pope Gelasius I replaced Lupercalia with St. Valentine’s Day. It came to be celebrated as a day of romance from about the 14th century. Today it is a massive cultural and commercial celebration around the globe, although it is not an official holiday.
There are a variety of community events happening this year in recognition of Valentine’s Day. There is truly a little something for everyone. See this edition for a calendar of events, a profile of a local couple and offerings from local businesses.
Now, as much as we are always glad to hear about the origins of this particular day, what most of us always wonder, how d our stars celebrate the day. We are grateful to social media that we can have a peek on what they got up to on this particular day. Well, it’s not always what we think, some continued to work as per usual, and others with their loved ones and so forth.
Well, check out the posts below on what the day means to them;
My forever valentine ❤️😍
