Fun Fact:
February 14th was a holiday for the Romans before it was a 'love day.'

Basically they celebrated a holiday on February 14th to honor Juno Fructifier (Queen of the Roman gods and goddesses.)

In one ritual, women would submit their names to a common box and men would each draw one out. These two would be a couple for the duration of the festival (and at times for the entire following year). Both rituals were designed to promote fertility.

Now the next day, On February 15, Romans celebrated Luperaclia, honoring Faunus, god of fertility.

Men would go to a grotto dedicated to Lupercal, the wolf god, located at the foot of Palatine Hill and where Romans believed that the founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus, were suckled by a she-wolf. The men would sacrifice a goat, don its skin, and run around, hitting women with small whips (I've read in sources that they used the goat's tail as a whip) in an act which was believed to promote fertility.

The Pope eventually deemed the event to be too macabre and cancelled this.
