This Valentine's Day...

| February 14, 2018

Did You Know?

Valentine’s Day is likely a continuation of the Roman feast of Lupercalia (a fertility festival).  The name presumably came from the third-century martyr Bishop Valentine, who defied the Roman Emperor Claudius’s order not to perform wedding ceremonies.  The Emperor believed that single men made better soldiers than those with wives.

In the late 1800s, Richard Cadbury produced the first box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day.  Today more than 35 million heart-shaped boxes of chocolate will be sold, and over $1 billion dollars of chocolate is purchased for Valentine’s Day in the US alone! 

If you’re like millions of other Americans and want to give your Valentine a treat, here are a couple of Sacramento establishments with exceptionally delicious choices you may not have tried:

Estelle’s Patisserie, 2530 Arden Way

Ginger Elizabeth Chocolates, 1801 L St. #60
