How the Obamas Have Celebrated Valentine's Day

来源:ABCNews 作者: 时间:2015-02-12 Tag: 点击:

Saturday marks the second-to-last Valentine's Day that the Obamas will spend as the first couple, but a review of their past celebrations show that they tend to keep the holiday low-key.

From spending time with their daughters to indulging with a foodie-friendly night out, the Obamas haven't stuck to a particular routine.

The first couple have not officially revealed their plans this year, but the president is scheduled to be in Palm Springs, California, after attending a cyber-security summit in San Francisco on Friday. The White House has not released the first lady’s schedule yet, but if they are not together on the holiday it won’t be the first time.

Here's a review of the Obamas' presidential Valentine's Days past.



The Obamas were on opposite sides of the country on Valentine's Day in 2014, with the president spending time with King Abdullah II of Jordan in California. They clearly didn't forget the holiday though, because they tweeted love notes to one another.

In addition, they went on a dinner date at D.C. restaurant Oyamel the week before Valentine's Day, according to The New York Daily News.

Years before, Michelle Obama had said that the restaurant of famed chef Jose Andres was one of her favorite restaurants in D.C. "because I love Latin food -- a good menu, good margaritas."

The timing of Valentine's Day always poses a bit of a problem for the Obamas' calendars because the holiday comes almost a month after Michelle Obama's birthday, when they normally do something special. That was more true than ever in 2014 when the first lady celebrated her 50th birthday with a celebrity-filled dance party at the White House.


When the Obamas find a chef that they like, they stay loyal.

That was the case in 2013, when, The Washington Post reported, the couple went to Jose Andres' award-winning restaurant Minibar, which seats only 12 people and, at the time, cost $225 a head without wine. (The restaurant has since raised its price to $250 a head.)


President Obama was clear that he had no intentions of missing that meal as he joked about the holiday while in Georgia earlier in the day.

"I can’t imagine a more romantic way to spend Valentine’s Day than with all of you, with all the press here,” Obama said teasingly to the traveling media. "Actually, Michelle says hello. She made me promise to get back in time for our date tonight. That’s important."

"I've already got a gift, got the flowers," he said. "I was telling folks: The flowers are a little easier, though, because I got this rose garden. A lot of people, you know, keeping flowers around."

He was sure to send out a throwback picture of the couple on Twitter.
