Grab the recipe with some scary facts about Valentine's day ;)
Banned in Some Places
One of the biggest creepy facts about Valentine’s day is that it is not actually celebrated everywhere in the world. However, more than just that, it is actually against the law in some countries. For example, Valentine’s Day is banned in Saudi Arabia. The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice restricts the sale of roses and anything red.
The Origin of Valentine’s Day
One of the creepy facts about Valentine’s Day is that no one really knows the origins of the holiday. The most popular theory about Valentine’s Day’s origin is that Emperor Claudius II didn’t want Roman men to marry during wartime. Bishop Valentine went against his wishes and performed secret weddings. For this, Valentine was jailed and executed. While in jail he wrote a note to the jailor’s daughter signing it “from your Valentine”.
Birds and Valentine’s Day
Birds and Valentine’s Day go hand in hand. However, have you heard of all of the creepy facts about Valentine’s Day that are associated with birds on this day? People used to believe that if a woman saw a robin flying above you on Valentine’s Day, she would end up marrying a sailor. Additionally, people believed if the woman saw a sparrow flying overhead, she would end up marrying poor but at the same time be very happy. Lastly, if she saw a goldfinch flying overhead, she would marry a millionaire.
Valentine’s Day in the Middle Ages
Valentine’s Day did not always have the same traditions and superstitions as we have today. In fact, one of the creepy facts about Valentine’s Day comes from the Middle Ages. During this time, people believed that the first unmarried person of the opposite sex that you saw on Valentine’s Day would become your spouse. Sounds like a good reason to stay in that day!
Eight Different St. Valentines
One of the creepy facts about Valentine’s Day is that throughout history, there have been approximately eight St. Valentines. Three of them had special feast days in their honor. The two St. Valentines who most likely inspired Valentine’s Day are Valentine of Terni and Valentine of Rome, though some scholars speculate they are actually one person.
The Irony of King Henry VIII
On February 14, 1537, King Henry VIII declared Valentine’s Day an official holiday. However this brings us to one of the most ironic and creepy facts about Valentine’s Day. King Henry VIII was famous for having many wives and then killing them when they didn’t give him a son.
A Lonely Day
One of the creepy facts about Valentine’s Day is that many women actually send themselves flowers. In many cases, it might be due to the fact that they feel sad that they are single and no one is loving them. In fact, according to statistics, as much as 15% of women in the United States might send cards and flowers to themselves just so that they don’t feel left out on Valentine’s Day.Needless to say, this fact is a big nock on the commercialization of Valentine’s Day.
Vintage Valentine’s Day Cards
One of the biggest creepy facts about Valentine’s Day is that in the mid 1900s, Valentine’s Day cards were very aggressive and direct. In fact, they took the idea of “stealing” someone’s heart quite literally, going so far as to depict scenes of kidnapping with guns or worse!*source
