When I learned the different version of the history of Valentines Day I immediately asked what version of valentines day do people celebrate and after reading it ask your self which of the valentines day have you been celebrating?
Version one: A Pagan Festival in February
This part of the year, the energy of the people is being manipulated, disguised in the form of love. The people that are involved in spiritual wickedness in high places are harnessing our energy to strengthen their dark magic spells. They use emotion, colors and symbols during certain times of the year…all year long…to feed their god, as their food is that of human blood and emotions.
During Lupercalia/Valentines Day lewd sex rituals are performed secretly all around the world. Temple priests will engage in sexual acts with young women with the goal of impregnating them. The babies born from this ritual will be killed and offered as a blood sacrifice in another ritual which occurs just weeks after they are born during the winter solstice/Christmas.
When you put it together it’s sickening. I do not want to hold on to this physically and spiritually disgusting tradition we have been programmed to give our energy to every single year…every single generation. This is not just “a day”. The reality of the situation is that your energy is being harnessed and used to feed their gods all throughout the year including Valentines Day.
Version one: Valentine as a Day of Romance.
Lupercalia survived the initial rise of Christianity and but was outlawed as it was deemed “un-Christian” at the end of the 5th century, when Pope Gelasius declared February 14 St. Valentine’s Day. It was not until much later, however, that the day became definitively associated with love. During the Middle Ages, it was commonly believed in France and England that February 14 was the beginning of birds’ mating season, which added to the idea that the middle of Valentine’s Day should be a day for romance.
Valentine greetings were popular as far back as the Middle Ages, though written Valentine’s didn’t begin to appear until after 1400. The oldest known valentine still in existence today was a poem written in 1415 by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London following his capture at the Battle of Agincourt. (The greeting is now part of the manuscript collection of the British Library in London, England.) Several years later, it is believed that King Henry V hired a writer named John Lydgate to compose a valentine note to Catherine of Valois.
Version three : Valentine day as a day of remembrance martyred (killed because of God)
The history of Valentine’s Day–and the story of its patron saint–is shrouded in mystery. We do know that February has long been celebrated as a month of romance and that St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. But who was Saint Valentine, and how did he become associated with this ancient rite?
The Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred. One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.
Version three : Other Stories about the Valentine day
Other stories suggest that Valentine may have been killed for attempting to help Christians escape harsh Roman prisons, where they were often beaten and tortured. According to one legend, an imprisoned Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” greeting himself after he fell in love with a young girl–possibly his jailor’s daughter–who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter signed “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still in use today. Although the truth behind the Valentine legends is murky, the stories all emphasize his appeal as a sympathetic, heroic and–most importantly–romantic figure. By the Middle Ages, perhaps thanks to this reputation, Valentine would become one of the most popular saints in England and France.
The question is which of the valentines day do you celebrate?
