Did You Know?
Saint Valentine wasn’t just one person. He may have actually been 2 or 3. There have been multiple St. Valentines throughout history, including a Pope!
The first valentine was sent in the 15th century. The oldest record of a valentine being sent was a poem written by a French duke to his wife in 1415. He penned this sweet note to his love while he was imprisoned in the tower of London. One of the lines read “I am already sick of love, My very gentle Valentine.”
More than 5 million American households gave Valentines presents to their pet dogs last year. More than 2 million picked up presents for their cats, as well!
However you celebrate, we hope you have a great day, filled with love and as much candy as you can eat!
