Valentine's day is around the corner; exactly a week from today. Therefore it is only right that i dedicate a post to the goodness of chocolate on Valentines day.
Valentine's day is an annual holiday held on the 14th of Feburary to celebrate love. But how did chocolate become so symbolic during Valentine's day? Regardless of why people give gifts on Valentine's day, chocolate is certainly a gift that is often expected. This dates back to the history of chocolate, where the Aztecs used to give chocolate as a gift. A box of chocolate can say many things, "I'm sorry," "get well," "I LOVE YOU," especially on Valentine's day.
Elaine Sherman wrote “Chocolate is heavenly, mellow, sensual, deep, dark, sumptuous, gratifying, potent, dense, creamy, seductive, suggestive, rich, excessive, silky, smooth, luxurious, celestial. Chocolate is downfall, happiness, pleasure, love, ecstasy, fantasy … chocolate makes us wicked, guilty, sinful, healthy, chic, happy.” Expressive of how we all feel on Valentine's day with our loved ones.
