Ok, I'm starting a little early... but I am just so darn excited!
Every February 14, across the world; candy, flowers and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine. According to one legend, Valentine actually sent the first "valentine" greeting himself. While in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girl (maybe his jailor's daughter) who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, which he signed "From your Valentine," an expression that is still in use today.
Did you know that approximately 150 million Valentine's Day cards are exchanged annually, making Valentine's Day the second most popular card-sending holiday after Christmas.
I am such a sucker for Romance, aren't you?
