Konga Travel and Tours, a 21st-century lifestyle travel booking agency, has disclosed the true meaning of Valentine, even as it shared some useful tips on how to celebrate it.

Indeed, love is in the air, with many Nigerians gearing up to join in the globally celebrated Valentine’s Day. However, there are a lot of misconceptions surrounding Valentine’s Day among Nigerians, especially the highly impressionable youths. As a matter of fact, one of the biggest misconceptions around Valentine’s Day is that it is a day to engage in immoral, lascivious conduct.

However, the real meaning of this noble celebration goes even deeper than that.

According to Konga Travel, Valentine is a unisex name derived from Valentinus and from the Latin word Valens, which means “strong and healthy.” Further, Konga Travel reveals that the foremost St. Valentine’s Day was named after a third-century martyr, celebrated in Christianity on February 14 and associated with a tradition of courtly love.

Additionally, the foremost travel booking company asserts that the first Valentine’s reference to love was in the Parlement of Foules, also known as Assembly of Fowls; a poem by Geoffrey Chaucer who is famously known as the Father of English literature. The poem, made up of approximately 700 lines, contains one of the earliest references to the idea that St. Valentine’s Day is a special day of love.

Equally important, Chaucer wrote: “For this was on St. Valentine’s Day when every bird cometh there to choose his mate.”

Since the 14th century, Valentine’s day has become a much-anticipated and globally celebrated annual fiesta.

Consequently, Konga Travel has offered some useful tips on how to celebrate it.

‘‘One of the best ways to make Valentine’s Day an unforgettable experience is to surprise a spouse, friend, family member or loved one with a special trip to an exotic destination,’’ the company disclosed. According to Konga Travel, there are several bargain deals offering highly discounted fares to a number of beautiful destinations. Additionally, Konga Travel has also emphasized the importance of making it a memorable affair for that special person.

‘‘There are a million and one things you can do. You can write a love note, put it in a jar and give it to your sweetheart. If you have kids, a family dinner or an indoor picnic is also a good idea. You can also celebrate by planning out your day: a conversational walk after work to see the sunset, a spa or movie date. You can even make your spouse, friend or that special person his or her best meal or give them a ‘Best Reasons Why I Love You’ list.

‘‘Most importantly, you must bear in mind that you must not wait until Valentine’s Day to do any of these or make your loved one feel special,’’ the company disclosed.
