This week on the Carolina Snowflakes Podcast we’re falling madly, deeply, head over heels in love. Nah, not really, but we’re talking a lot about love this week since it’s Valentine’s Day.
We start this week’s adventure with a nod to our friend Lou Reed and his epic love ballad, “Satellite of Love”. Oh how we wish we had a budget for our show. You’ll just have to use your imagination along with us (and the link below) – we promise it’ll be worth it.
Tune in as we give you a crash course in the history and origins of this touchy-feely, buy-all-the-candy holiday. For example, why are there 2 very different depictions of Cupid in historical tales? Are they even the same guy? Is one cooler than the other?
Plus, hear why Pope Gelasius wanted to replace the naked fish-slapping Roman festival called Lupercalia with a tamer Saint Valentines Day Feast. What’s wrong with naked fish-slapping, exactly?
You’ll be sure to laugh as you stick around til the end of this love-filled episode to hear your favorite Snowflakes answer a few questions about love and relationships. Hear our opinions on what makes relationships work and whether the notion of “soulmates” is realistic. Our answers may surprise you!
