The Feast of Saint Valentine

A dozen roses.

The origins of St. Valentines day are somewhat confused between the christian priest Valentinus and the pagan fertility festival known as Lupercalia it has become more about myth than truth. However the day first became associated with love due to Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for one another by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards known as "valentines". Whereas in Europe, Saint Valentine's Keys are given to lovers as a romantic symbol and an invitation to unlock the giver’s heart. 

With each separate tradition the one constant theme is always a celebration of love whether it is done exclusively or in a large gathering there are many unique and new ways to celebrate Valentines day. From masquerade balls to bespoke made romantic evenings for two which transport your love to another time and place, there are no limits to the different ways in which to celebrate this special day.
