Happy "Valentine's" Day!!!

The celebration of Valentine's Day has not always been a holiday of roses and chocolate. While some people claim that the celebration was meant to honor St. Valentine's death, around A.D. 270, some also claim that the celebration was more than that. It has been rumored that the reason why the Christian church placed Valentine’s Day in the middle of February was because they wanted to “Christianize” the pagan celebration of Lupercalia. Lupercalia was a festival commemorating Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture, as well as some other Roman founders. The rituals of the festival were later banned, being recalled as inhumane...

So how does this have anything to do with Tuition Hot Sauce? Well, since Valentine's Day might have a connection to the Roman god of agriculture, it could also be interpreted as a celebration of plants, of hot peppers even! And I, Anna Jaffe, am considering studying agriculture in college, which is only months away. What a coincidence!

So we just want to say Happy Valentine's Day to all our hot sauce lovers and partners out there. XOXO
