We're All Loved Up at Station Taxis!

Yes, Valentine’s Day will soon be here, and this year’s heart-warming day falls on Wednesday 14th February. While not everyone will ‘mark’ the occasion, if you are treating the one you love to a meal out or a trip to a surprise location, then we would be delighted to get you from A to B.
There are some fabulous places to eat out, for example, so if you want to relax and enjoy the evening, complete with a glass or two of wine (dry January is over, fortunately), then please give us a call.
Yet have you ever wondered how did this heart-shaped tradition even began?
Research suggests there are numerous Christian martyrs named Valentine, and it is thought the first association of ‘love’ together with Valentine’s Day was penned by Geoffrey Chaucer in the year 1382, when the writer noted ‘how every bird chooses his mate’ around the middle of February.
In the mid-18th century, a popular pastime was to pass love notes made of lace and paper, while in 1847, Esther Howland of Worcester, Massachusetts started producing Valentine cards.
While you may or may not say it hearts and flowers, at least you can arrive in style and enjoy the occasion.
