The History of a Romantic Limo Ride

The History of a Romantic Limo Ride

Valentine's Day is one of the most romantic days of the year and while some people say it is just a celebration for the greeting card companies, you may be in big trouble if you forget to do something for your special girl on the big day.

Therefore, make sure you organise a limousine for Valentine's Day, but do it early as you don't want to miss out. Hiring a limousine on Valentine's Day allows you to spoil your sweetheart on this romantic day. You will be able to show up at her door step with the limousine waiting outside and whisk her away to the most romantic restaurant in town or to a special secret spot for just the two of you.

Waiting inside the limousine will be a bottle of champagne to get the celebrations started and because the chauffeur is the designated driver, there is no excuse not to enjoy a sample from the limousine bar.

When you get to your romantic destination, you can woo your special lady in your own special way but when you are ready to leave again, your limousine chauffeur will be ready and waiting to take you to the next destination or back home at the end of the night.

While you are wooing your special lady you may also want to amaze her with your knowledge of this special day. For example, Valentine's Day actually has a disputed origin as some experts say that the day originated from Saint Valentine who was martyred for refusing to give up Christianity and died on February 14 269 AD. Saint Valentine was also said to have left a farewell note for the jailer's daughter who had become his friend and it was signed from your Valentine'.

Others say that Saint Valentine served as a priest at the temple during the reign of Emperor Claudius who had Valentine jailed for defying him.

Whatever the reason, in 496 AD, Pope Gelasius set aside February 14 to honour Saint Valentine. Gradually February 14 became the day love messages were sent and Saint Valentine became the patron saint of lovers.

While the first commercial Valentine's Day cards were introduced in the 1800s make sure you don't forget a card, flowers or teddy bear for your sweetheart when you pick her up in your chauffeur driven limousine.
