The predominant color: red of course. Color of passion, it is de rigueur on this feast day of love.
But who is Valentine? It’s the boss of lovers!
There are two legends explaining the origins of Valentine’s Day:
1- Valentine’s Day would have been a priest imprisoned and beheaded on February 14th. The children are very fond of him, and it is said that they gave him messages to comfort him through the bars of his cell. The result would be the sweet words that we exchange today.
2- Another story tells that at the time of the military campaigns in Rome, the emperor Claude II, nicknamed Claude the Cruel, having difficulties to recruit soldiers for his army, decided to prohibit the marriage. The latter believed that the Romans would refuse to fight, preferring to stay with their wives. Despite his orders, St. Valentine continued to celebrate marriages. When Claude II learned of the existence of these marriages, he imprisoned Valentin. During his stay in prison, he made the acquaintance of the daughter of his jailer, a blind girl to whom he restored his sight and sent a letter signed “Your Valentine”.
Today, February 14 is the opportunity to declare his love or to celebrate his love.
So, to spend a beautiful evening with your sweetheart or your lover, here are some ideas for beautiful tables for tonight:
