Valentine’s Day at Orion Hotels

15 February 2019

Can you feel it in the air? It’s that time of year again where shop fronts are covered in red, white and pink. It’s Valentine’s Day. Today we celebrate Valentine’s Day by showering our loved ones with chocolates, flowers and cute stuffed animals. But do you really know the true origin of Valentine’s Day?

In the beginning
To cut a long story short and without boring you, we celebrate Valentine’s Day in honor of a Roman Saint, St Valentine who was martyred on the 14th of February 269 AD. This saint is widely recognized as the saint of love and was martyred for helping Christians in Rome who were persecuted during that time. In 469 AD Pope Gelasius established the feast of Saint Valentine in honor of the Christian Martyr. Today we know this day to be Valentine’s Day

Since then we continue to celebrate Saint Valentine and this year will be no different. The tradition of Saint Valentine is not known to many and in our modern times we celebrate this day as the day of love.

How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?
Every couple or person celebrates this day differently. Children write cards at school, boyfriends go in search of red roses, a symbol of love, others enjoy a romantic dinner with their partner. It is a subjective celebration of love in any shape or form.
