Short History about the St. Valentine
The history of Valentine’s Day together with the story of the saint is shrouded in mystery.
What is known is that February has long been celebrated as a month of romance and that St. Valentine’s Day, contains vestiges of both Christian and Roman tradition.
Catholic Church recognized three or more saints named Valentine/us and all were martyred.
One of the many legend's contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome.
When Emperor Claudius II decided that the single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for the young men.
Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret.
When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered to be executed.

People give chocolates, candies with red hearts, flowers, and other gifts to the loved ones during that day.

Time to Think of an amazing idea about Valentine's Day in Poland
As we mentioned above, it doesn't matter if it is the 14th of February or just a normal day.
It is always nice to impress your loved ones with an awesome surprise. It can be just flowers, it doesn't matter.
Remember, if you do not have a partner, it might be the best occasion to invite someone you like for a nice dinner that day.

A few More Ideas for Valentines Day
Usually, people buy flowers for sure during that day and maybe something with hearts, sexy underwear and etc.
The good restaurants and romantic hotels around Warsaw are possibly fully booked and if you want to find an awesome place, you need to book in advance.
Something that might not worth is that during that day the restaurants create special menus and the many places go overpriced.
In my opinion, it doesn't worth going out that day and it might be a better idea to buy a nice bottle/s of wine and cook something nice for him/her.
Light some candles, put some nice music, dance together, drink, and make love.
When it comes to a family with kids things become a bit more complicated. Except for all the above, you can still make a nice present to each other.
We should make nice presents to each other not only on Valentine's Day, Name Day, Anniversary's and Birthday's but also other times.
Book a hotel around Poland
The best way to get closer to each other is to go for 1-2 days somewhere alone.
The only problem is that usually, the 14th of February is in the middle of the week.
Anyway, you can book a nice hotel in a beautiful place and just escape the two of you the first weekend after Valentine's Day in Poland.
Or even better, you do not have to wait for Valentine's Day to do that, it can be any weekend :)
