Lupercalia



I like the thought that St Valentine is also the Patron Saint of bee keepers. We seem to be getting more sentimental as we get older in this house - or perhaps my loved one sent me this knowing I won't be able to manage the chocolate and sparkly wine on my own. Tut, tut, now there's no call for that kind of scepticism, love is after all meant to be share.

Well I might be tempted to do a little dance around the house when no one is looking but that will be the only nod to the old Roman celebration of Lupercalia which may or may not be the origins of today's celebrations - except, of course, to hope that evil spirits are averted and good health comes to us all.
