Why is chocolate associated with love? Valentines Day chocolate is an ancient gift dating all the way back to Roman times.
In Italy, Valentine’s Day is considered an ancient celebration of love, romance, and fertility. Historically, Valentine’s Day was celebrated to welcome Spring in honor of Juno, the Roman Goddess of Love. The holiday originated during the Roman Empire and has always been recognized on February 14th. During the Spring festival, people would flow into the streets of Venice, Florence and Rome for long walks, romantic feasts, and share gifts of fresh flowers or chocolate with love.
