121: The Dark History of Valentine's Day: Hate Mail, Orgies, and Animal Sacrifice??

Dark History

Feb 14 2024 • 53 mins

Hi friends, happy Valentine's Day!

Maybe it’s all the social pressure, but personally, Valentine’s Day is not my favorite holiday. And I know I’m not alone in that. Sometimes it feels like Valentine’s Day is just one big scam. Like, why is there only *ONE DAY* to show people we love them? Where did all this pressure come from?! Well turns out, Valentine’s Day has a super surprising backstory…

I appreciate you for coming by, and tune in next week for more Dark History.
