February is traditionally known as the month of love thanks to Valentine's Day, also known as Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, which is celebrated annually on 14th February. Valentine’s Day is said to have originated as a Christian feast day in honour of martyr Saint Valentine, however in more recent years it has become a commercial celebration of romance and love in many parts of the world, with exchanging of love tokens and gifts.
While Valentine’s Day is a day filled with excitement and romance for many, it can also be a day that many would rather skip – a reminder of failed relationships, hurts, unrequited love or unmet expectations. This Valentine’s Day, Laager Rooibos is celebrating love in all its forms as a reminder that, even in the absence of romantic love, love is all around us.
Whether it’s the love between parent and child, siblings, grandparent and grandchild, friends, neighbours or colleagues – love is worth celebrating in all its forms. To show how it’s done, South African twin chefs and Laager Rooibos ambassadors, @withlovefromthetwins Lebo and Tebo Ndala, have shared how significant their sisterly bond is in each of their lives.
When asked about whether their close connection started at a young age, Lebo commented:
“We’ve always gotten along! We’ve always been very close because we were so shy so we’ve always been friends. It’s helped that we’ve always had the same interests and so working together and going through life’s journey together has just made us closer.”
Tebo agreed, saying that being twins meant there was always double the fun:
“We figured out quickly that, when we got gifts or bought things, we would go for something different. That way, we would get to enjoy two experiences and have double the fun!”
Alongside their two younger siblings, these Mamelodi-born sisters were raised by their mother and grandmother, both of whom loved cooking. This was a love the family shared, and from experimenting with recipes at home, the twins eventually went on to establish their own catering company, With Love from the Twins.
Lebo said the sisters have managed to maintain a connection as business partners as well as family by catering to each other’s love languages:
“That means lots of Laager Rooibos tea, restaurant dates, live matches, and self-care girly stuff! That’s how we truly bond.”
And, being identical twins means that there aren’t any secrets between the two – especially since they can open each other’s iPhones using biometric facial recognition!
Candice Sessions, Laager Rooibos Marketing Manager, said the twins’ strong bond and love for their family was a great example of what this month of love should be about:
“While Valentine’s Day has traditionally focused on romantic love, love truly comes in many forms and each is worth celebrating. We’ve all been through a rough few years, and we need our loved ones now more than ever.”
