First day of Lupercalia – partly in honour of Lupa, who suckled Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome, this ancient Roman festival basically involved sacrificing some goats, and then running around naked whipping people whilst laughing maniacally. Nobody has this much fun anymore.

It was also the start of Parentalia in Rome, a nine-day festival of giving offerings to the family tomb. Maybe make a family tree to find out about your ancestors.

World Radio Day – so record a radio show!
