Before St Valentine’s Day, there was Lupercalia

If you really want to celebrate the day in an old school way, it will have to involve goats, dogs, and young men of good social standing emerging naked from a cave and whipping people with strips of goatskin.

Just sayin’.

Happy St Valentine’s Day and Happy Lupercalia to all.
