Top 10 places to celebrate Valentine’s Day

2020-02-13, Kathmandu

Whether it be a bouquet of flowers or jewellery, the holiday is about expressing affection for another person with a message of love. Marked on 14th February every year, celebrating this day is a very old tradition, thought to have originated from a Roman festival. 

Valentine’s day is believed to be entitled after the Christain Priest Saint Valentine, who refused to follow a law imposed by Roman Emperor Claudius II that prohibited soldiers to marry. Saint Valentine became a bridge between lovers and encouraged Roman Soldiers to marry their partners.
