Discover the surprises that Hôtel du Centre has prepared for you on this special day to amaze, in turn, the one your heart has chosen...
Valentine’s Day and its mysteries
Although the tradition of Valentine’s Day, associated with the sign of love, officially goes back to the end of the middle age, its specific meaning is still unknown. At that time, February 14 would be considered a significant date related to the belief that it is the day of pairing of the birds, that is, their union as a couple. Let us point out, in fact, that of the whole animal kingdom, the birds are a perfect example, because of the unfailing faithfulness they choose to dedicate themselves to each other for life.
Another more ancient legend would rather bring to mind a pagan custom already dating from ancient Rome, where the Lupercalia (feasts of fertility) corresponded to a ceremony of cleansing taking place from February 13 to 15 of the Roman year. Before this practice was later forbidden by a pope of the Catholic Church, Valentine would then have been chosen as Saint, patron of lovers and engaged couples.
It would then be in the 19th century and especially in the Anglo-Saxon countries, that Valentine’s Day would have become popular through small bills bearing words of love, that it was customary to offer to anyone love or friendship.
Even more recently, these short missives seem to have given way to greeting cards illustrated with hearts or a Cherub, which would then be reserved only for lovers.
No uncertainties though if you are not fond of romantic displays or passionate statements to show your love to the one you cherish. More than the gesture itself, it is your meaning that makes it all beautiful.
Let those lacking ideas be reassured, since the Hôtel du Centre has everything planned! All you have to do is plan your evening on February 14...
