The Feast of Lovers - What is celebrated?

Flowers, heart-shaped sweets and love letters - for many couples, this is simply part of Valentine"s Day. But where does this “holiday for lovers” come from? Saint Valentine from Rome, who is also considered the patron saint of lovers and who was beheaded on February 14, seems to be the namesake. Because the Bishop of Terni, who lived in Rome in the 3rd century, secretly married lovers according to the Christian rite, although Emperor Claudius II had forbidden it. He also gave the newlyweds flowers from his garden.

After the Second World War, the Valentine"s custom came to Germany and Austria through British occupation soldiers via England and America. Since then, Valentine"s Day has not only been a celebration for lovers, but also a celebration of friendship and family. In Finland, the day is not called Valentine"s Day, but "Friends" Day".

It doesn"t matter whether it"s friends" day or lover"s day, everyone loves presents and people like to take Valentine"s Day as an opportunity to make someone happy again! Beautiful, sweet and personal - this would make the perfect Valentine"s Day gift! But what is the right thing?

1. Say it through the flower!

The tulip is arguably the most popular flower given on Valentine"s Day, followed by roses, daffodils and gerberas. At Blumenwerk Helga you will not only get the colorful awakening spring flowers, but also hearts of all kinds and beautiful spring bouquets and heartfelt flower arrangements for your loved ones.

Opening hours: Helga is open for your Valentine"s Day shopping on Saturday from 8.30 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Sunday from 8.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. and on Monday also from 8.30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

2. Sweets for the celebration of love - sweets made by masters

Giving something sweet for Valentine"s Day is well received and always gives great pleasure! How about a cake made from Puch? Master confectioner Theresa Jahoda recently moved to Puch with her creative bakery, where you will soon be able to try the sweet works of art in the small café. For Valentine"s Day there are still their popular Sacher cakes with fresh berries and the inscription "I LOVE YOU", which you can order until Friday by calling 0664/5652662 and pick them up on Saturday morning. Get in quick, the popular "LOVE-BOX" is already sold out!

3. My gem!

Flowers and sweets are not for your loved ones? How about a handmade piece of jewellery? Judith and Bernhard from "Herr Holz und Frau Schmuck" in Puch will give you homemade earrings and bracelets made of epoxy resin, wood or glass beads. If you are from the area, you can still pick up the jewelery for Valentine"s Day directly in Puch, otherwise simply order it by Email or message!

4. Give me a castle!

Write your name or initials on a padlock and hang the so-called “love lock” on a bridge railing on your next walk together. The key that you use to lock the lock is then thrown into the river together and is said to be a sign of eternal affection. In the meantime, you can also see more and more steel hearts made of latticework in cities or ski areas that have been specially built for this purpose.

The most famous "love lock bridge" in Germany is the Hohenzollern Bridge in Cologne, about which the well-known pop group "Die Höhner" even sings  a song.

Caution! Before you attach your lock where, first make sure that it is allowed. In some cities like Venice and Berlin there is a strict ban, elsewhere the tourist value is seen and the castles are tolerated. But there is no guarantee of eternity anywhere. It can happen that the locks (have to) be removed again with bolt cutters as a security measure.

5. Love goes through the stomach!

What could be nicer than enjoying good food with your loved one over a glass of wine in peace and quiet! Whether in the restaurant or at a romantic candle night dinner in your own four walls, in Puch you will definitely get the right dish for your Valentine"s Day dinner for two or for the whole family.
