No one knows for sure where Valentine’s Day comes from, but there are a couple of popular theories.
Some believe that Valentine’s Day started in ancient Rome with the celebration of Lupercalia, a day which honored Lupercus and Faunus and the founders of Rome. It was celebrated on February 15.
Another theory is that there were two saints and a priest named Valentine. One saint was executed on February 14th and 227 years later, Pope Gelasius named February 14, Valentine’s Day for him. The priest named Valentine disobeyed the Emperor and secretly married couples.
According to web sources, the modern day celebration of Love began in England and France.The first Valentine was sent in 1415 on February 14 when a French Duke was in jail and sent a Valentine to his wife.
Valentine’s candy was first given in the late 1800′s. Valentine’s Day is now celebrated in many countries around the world. In addition to the United States, England, France, Australia, Canada and Mexico celebrate this special day. In the United States alone, over a billion cards are sent to mark the day.
Roses are the traditional flower to give on Valentine’s Day and over 100 million roses are usually sold in the three-day period around Valentine’s Day.

Gajar ka Halwa ♥
Okay carrot halwa is very delicious and I love to eat this halwa. I think this halwa is one of the best and unique sweet tasted food item. 🙂
This is a dish which my mom makes every winter, especially when the Delhi Carrots start arriving in the markets. I too am following her footsteps and plan to make this dish on this weekend, if it goes well and everybody likes it then may be 2-3 times during these winter months. :p
Carrot halwa can be kept in a fridge for about a week or you can freeze it for a couple of months. When you fancy indulging, just warm it up 🙂 Yummy
