Valentine’s Day has been a tradition for over several centuries, but it was not always associated with love and romance. Ancient Roman tradition celebrated a pagan festival called Lupercalia that centered on the birth of their founders, Remus and Romulus. It was a day of fertility, since men and women were often paired off on this day, which eventually ended in their marriages. The Catholic Church then Christianized the festival as St. Valentine’s Day, celebrating the life and work of the martyr that married young couples in secret during a time when marriages among the young adults were outlawed. February was soon associated with the month of romance and love while it’s 14th day is when couples all around celebrated their relationships with candies, chocolates, flowers, and other gifts.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and we’ve drummed up a very special treat for our subscribers this love month: a Valentines box from Raw Bites! We scoured through our stocks and partner brands to come up with a box filled with healthy sweets that will make your heart skip a beat -in a good way.
