Otherwise known as Lupercalia! which was an annual Roman festival, held on February 15 to honour Faunus, god of fertility and forests. The festival was celebrated near the cave of Lupercal on the Palatine (one of the seven Roman hills), to expiate and purify new life in the Spring. This festival’s origins are older than the founding of Rome.
