Valentine’s Day Calendar is a nice idea for those who really like this celebration! We can only wish someone made an annual calendar as this one! We all know this day of a year as St. Valentine’s Day – February 14th. It is an annual celebration of romantic love, friendship and admiration. We celebrate this day by sending messages, cards and small (or big) gift as signs of love and affection to partners, family and friends! If you did not yet prepare something special for your “honey” or “bunny” – we have some nice ideas for gifts – take a look at the table set up – beautiful linen napkins and matching tea towel with summer flowers… Your Valentine will be pleased!

And if you want to make a nice dessert – here is the recipe for the Italian Tiramisu, which means “pick me up” or “cheer me up” – served at the end of the meal that hopefully “cheers you up”!

The week is celebrated starting from the Rose Day until the last and the most important Valentine’s Day on February 14th.

The history is that the  first Valentine’s Day card dates to 1415 . On that day the Duke of Orléans sent a card to his wife while prisoned in the Tower of London. In the United States, Valentine’s Day cards didn’t gain popularity until the Revolutionary War. Only later people took up the habit of writing notes to their sweethearts and only in the early 1900s the cards started to be mass produced for the holiday.
