The only difficulty may be in deciding precisely how to spend Valentine’s, as it can be so hard to choose from all the potential activities you could do.
Why not make your Valentine’s day in London especially amazing and go on an almost indescribably romantic champagne cruise along the Thames? You may ask: what is the origin of Valentine’s Day?
The answer to this question remains vague and uncertain; there is not one simple concrete explanation about how Valentine’s Day arose. The day is named after one, or possibly more early Christian martyrs called Saint Valentine. Indeed, three different Saint Valentines’ have been cited in the martyrologies of the Roman Catholic Church. One of the narratives of Saint Valentine says that he worked as a priest at a temple during Emperor Claudius’ reign.
Claudius then had Valentine imprisoned for challenging him. Legend also says that St. Valentine left a farewell note for the jailer’s daughter, who had become his friend, and signed it “From Your Valentine”. Valentine’s Day was first deemed a yearly event by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD. It was, however, obliterated from the General Roman Calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI.
It is conventionally a day on which lovers articulate their devotion for one another by buying flowers, bestowing confectionery, and exchanging greeting cards. Valentine’s day actually began being allied with romantic love in the Middle Ages, when the courtly love tradition thrived. Whatever its origins and historical significance, you must ensure you celebrate Valentine’s Day in a special way this year with an enchanting champagne cruise. Savour some sumptuous champagne as you enjoy a charming commentary on board. You will simply become overwhelmed by your luxurious and intensely romantic cruise, gliding past some of the most compelling and awe-inspiring landmarks in London.
