Valentine’s Day originated as a Western Christian feast day honouring one or two early saints named Valentinus. Valentine’s Day is recognised as a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and romantic love in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.
The day first became associated with romantic love within the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which people expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards.
Here at Pure Offices Portsmouth we celebrated Valentines day with a client get together, drinking coffee, eating cake and not to forget the sharing of chocolates!
