Valentine’s Day is all about love. It represents love for your partner, love for your family, friends, and even yourself! These recipes are perfect to share with those you love any time of the year, but especially on Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day is always on February 14th, no matter what day of the week it falls. There are a few stories about how we came to celebrate this mid-February day of love. One story is that a man named Valentine secretly held marriage ceremonies for soldiers who were banned from marriage by the emperor of Rome. (The emperor wanted the soldiers to focus on being soldiers.)
Once discovered, Valentine was killed on February 14th. But, right before his death, he supposedly wrote a love letter, a valentine, to his jailer’s daughter. In the 5th century, February 14th was declared Valentine’s Day. But, even before Valentine’s day was declared, there were celebrations and festivities of love.
Today, over 20 billion dollars is spent on Valentine’s Day. Instead of buying gifts, consider making something from the heart to show someone you care. These Valentine’s Day recipes are a delicious and thoughtful way to express your love.
