Ultimate Valentine’s Day Guide: 15 Original Activities for Couples and Singles

Ah Valentine’s Day, this holiday that delights some and depresses more than one. In addition to singles and couples, two categories stand out: couples who do not want to celebrate but do so under pressure from their partner, and those who want to celebrate fully.

No matter your situation, your CityCrunch Team has prepared a series of original activities for you to share between singles, enthusiastic partners or even with a less motivated partner. This list is specially created for partners and friends who are reluctant to celebrate Valentine’s Day. However, we assume no responsibility if you encounter any objections.

Oh yes and by the way, happy Valentines Day (yes, we must not forget them, it’s their party!)

Culture moment (because we love it): What’s the story of Valentine’s Day 🏹❤️?

Valentine’s Day is like a romantic mixtape between Roman history and the Middle Ages. In the 3rd century, Valentin de Terni, a rebel priest, played clandestine Cupids by blessing marriages under the nose of Emperor Claudius II, who was not at all in the love mood. Then Papa Gelasius I arrives in reformer mode, saying “Stop the pagan Lupercalia!” and transforming February 14 into a Christian holiday in homage to our beloved martyr, Saint Valentine. In the Middle Ages, Chaucer and his coterie of poets said “Hey, it’s time for the lovebirds!”, starting the tradition of romantic notes. And since then, we’ve been playing it with heart-shaped chocolates and bouquets of red roses, hoping that Cupid doesn’t miss his target!

See a film during the Love Festival UGC

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, the UGC cinema invites you to watch one of the most famous romantic films, Pretty Woman. From February 7 to 15 ten romantic films will be screened during the Love Festival UGC ! On show, Bridget Jones’s Diary, Dirty Dancing, Love at First Sight in Notting Hill, The Boom and many others.
