Sweets For My Sweet

Today is Valentine's Day! Did you know that it began as a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saints named Valentinus? February 14th was first associated with romantic love in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England it finally evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery and sending greeting cards. According to a recent survey Valentine's Day matters to only one out of three Austrians. Anyway, I think these sweet hearts would be an acceptable gift ;-)
