Celebrating Love in Eastern Manitoba

Valentine's Day has a unique and interesting history. Once more commonly celebrated as an annual holiday honouring one or more early saints named Valentinus, Valentine's Day started evolving. In the 14th Century, February 14th became associated with romantic love within the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer. By the 18th Century, the day had evolved into the celebration we still practice today, one in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting gifts such as flowers, chocolates, and greeting cards.

We found some wonderful and unique ways to celebrate Valentine's Day in the Eastman. From the DIY craft nights for those who are artistically inclined to the most romantic pizza love can buy, check out our list of interesting and unique Valentine's events.
