There are many myths and legends surrounding the origin of St Valentine’s Day. However, it is attributed to a martyred clergyman who ministered to Christians, who at the time were persecuted by the Roman Empire. It wasn’t until the 18th Century that St Valentine’s Day became the day where couples expressed their love and affection through the giving of flowers and cards.
The day is also known as the Feast of Saint Valentine, so it’s no wonder that many couples celebrate the day with a romantic candlelit dinner for two – whether in a restaurant or in a more intimate setting at home.
Why wait for that one day a year to have a cosy, romantic dinner for two? You can make any day of the year romantic. From celebrating your loved one’s birthday, or just because it’s Friday, whatever your reason, having a romantic dinner for two needn’t be hard work.
Restaurant or home cooked?
It can often be a hassle to go out for a meal on Valentine’s day, as restaurants tend to get booked up very quickly, and some only offer special set menus at inflated costs. Plus there’s the fact that you are trying to have an intimate dinner with lots of other couples!
Staying at home however can also be a hassle if you haven’t got the time – or skill – to lovingly prepare and cook the perfect meal.
