Celebrated in much of the world, Valentine's Day is on February 14th. Every year on this date couples strive to ensure that the day spent with their partner is unique and unforgettable.
So let's take a look at where the custom of celebrating this day comes from. Although its name leads back to a saint and therefore suggests the idea of a religious holiday (San Valentino in Italian), its origin is still to be clarified: there are those who trace it back to the ancient Romans, those who trace it back to Richard II of England, or to the humanistic institution of the High Court of Love in Paris... However, for now, the only real proof is that left by Charles of Orleans. Following the defeat in the battle of Azincourt, the latter in fact wrote a letter to his wife and referred to her with the nickname "Sweetest Valentina".
Regardless of its history, this day is dedicated to lovers who are always looking for new ideas to surprise their better half. However, as is often the case with aiming high and looking for the wow factor, often it's hard to see that the solution is at hand. This year, aim for the simplicity of a tasty home-cooked dinner.
