Most people know that Valentine's Day falls on February 14th and that it's a great excuse to buy chocolates. Some say its origins began in the Roman festival of Lupercalia, a boozy pagan fertility rite, but its long, illustrious history can be firmly traced back to around 496 AD, when it was a religious – not romantic! – celebration of St. Valentine and an occasion for feasting.

Valentine's Day became associated with the concept of "courtly love" in the High Middle Ages, when chivalrous knights would profess their love with noble deeds and gestures in order to win the affection of a maiden. By the 18th Century, Valentine's Day had evolved into something more closely resembling the romantic holiday we celebrate today, replete with lovers exchanging gifts of sweets and flowers, as well as the eponymous cards known as valentines.

During the Victorian era, enterprising British chocolatier Richard Cadbury saw a great opportunity to sell prettily-decorated boxes of chocolate as Valentine's Day gifts that could be used to store romantic mementos long after the candy was eaten. Around the same time, preprinted greeting cards gained popularity, and in 1913, Hallmark began mass-producing valentines.

Nowadays, Valentine's Day isn't just for lovers. Parents buy Valentine's Day gifts and cards for their kids and vice versa, kids buy them for classmates, single friends buy them for each other... Some people even hold anti-Valentine's Day parties to vent about the holiday, or Galentine's Day get-togethers to celebrate the women in their lives.

Whatever your feelings are about Valentine's Day, a gift of Cocoa Dolce chocolate is always appropriate!
