Valentine's Day has many colourful origins, and
as many stories. For some it expressed
anticipation of the coming spring. An old
English belief held that birds chose their mates
on February 14th. At least two saints were named
Valentine. Roman Emperor Claudius II, (200 A.D.)
forbade soldiers to marry, but a priest named
Valentine secretly married young couples against
the orders of the emperor. What is certain is
that St.Valentine’s Day was officially declared
in 496 A.D. and has been celebrated ever since.
This year, celebrate Valentine’s Day with
Random Acts of Kindness...
- Cook for a friend
- Wash someone’s dishes
- Reach out to somebody you've had differences
- and, of course, buy Tall Grass & Grass
Roots treats, such as...
Red River Hearts
A heart shaped cookie filled with a delectable
glaze made from our own local raspberry and wild
cranberry blend. A visual and sensory delight.
A decadent rich Valentine’s treat with butter,
chocolate, coffee and, yes, sugar.
Come in to place your orders in person at any of
our locations or simply call us. Then you can
cross one more thing off your to-do list, and
ensure that you’ll have your favourite treats in
time for the date.
