Valentine’s Day Slimes
I wanted to get some inspiration for this blog, so I decided to cruise around Google for information about the origin of Valentine’s Day. And. I. Am. Horrified. Hold on to your cherubs because you’re in for a wild ride.
Apparently, according to NPR, while no one can directly pinpoint the exact origin of Valentine’s Day, one of the earliest known celebrations is from ancient Rome: the feast of Lupercalia. Celebrated on February 14th, the Romans sacrificed goats and dogs and then whipped women with the sacrificed animal’s hide, believing this would bring fertility. The three words used to describe the event were “drunk,” “naked,” and “violent.”
Ah, young love.
It gets worse.
There was also a jar filled with the names of eligible women. Young men would draw a name and then there was “coupling” for the remainder of the feast.
Honestly, I wasn’t expecting that story. But what about love is predictable? Over centuries, the Christians removed the pagan rituals from the holiday and put more clothes on. Hallmark did the rest.
I can promise you that your honey will not appreciate an animal-hide whipping or a lottery-style “coupling” for Valentine’s Day. So, may I suggest some of our finest slimes?
