Valentine's Day

Red roses, heart shaped chocolate boxes, love letters and cards, there are so many ways to express your feelings to someone you love, especially on Valentine’s Day. And when it comes to a romantic trip, Paris is always on top of the list. The beauty of Paris will never disappoint but it’s always difficult to spend the perfect Valentine’s Day in a city you don’t really know. So in order to make this a day you’ll never forget, find out the 10 best things to do in Paris for Valentine’s Day. Or would you rather know how the tradition of whipping single women turned into the international day of Love? 


In the early centuries of our era, pagans in the ancient Roman Empire would celebrate Lupercalia for fertility and purification reasons. A goat would be sacrificed for the occasion and 2 men would then run around the city. With the skin of the goat, they would whip women who wished to bear a child in the following year. A curious way to ensure their fertility! In the 5th century, Pope Gelasius I banned this celebration and immediately sanctified a 3rd century priest named Valentine. The new celebrations for singles would take place on February 14th. But who was Father Valentine and why this date?

Father Valentine

In the 3rd century, the roman emperor Claudius II banned marriage in order to have a dedicated army. But Valentine defied the emperor and secretly wed many young soldiers. Aware of what was happening, Claudius II imprisoned the priest. It is said that couples secretly united by Valentine visited his cell and gave him notes and flowers. The legend also mentions that on Valentine’s execution day, February 14th, he sent a note to the women he loved with the inscriptions “From your Valentine”. A tradition was born, but not before the 14th century…

Middle Ages

Prior to the 14th century, single women would hide in and around the village on February 14th, waiting for young men to find them and marry them the following year. It is only in the late 14th century that the legend of Valentine mentioned previously appeared. Slowly but surely, what was once the celebration for singles and fertility became the celebration of love and couples. 


Today, although some people do not want to celebrate Valentine’s Day, most of the couples do, whether it’s a nice dinner or simply a card, a rose or a box of chocolates. It is actually Richard Cadbury, the son of the founder of the world famous chocolate company that launched the first heart shaped box of chocolates for this special occasion in the late 19th century. As for cupid, found on almost all the Valentine’s Day cards, he is the God of Love and it is only natural that he also has his say on Valentine’s Day.
