Hi Claire! Is it true that Henry VIII was the first king to make valentines day a holiday? Love your site with love//Ruth

Hi Ruth,
I've read online that Henry VIII used a royal charter to make Valentine's Day a holiday but I've never come across it in my research. I know that it was celebrated in Tudor times as it is mentioned in the records but I can't say for sure that Henry made it a holiday. Sorry
