Valentine's is around the corner!
Did you know Valentine's day origins are of Christians and Romans traditions. It's a time a to celebrate love and romance. Handmade cards became the "token-du-jour only" in the middle ages and it's only in 1900 that the tradition came to the "New World". Then cards started to be mass produced in the US. The older Valentine's poem was written back in1415 by the Duke of Orleans to his wife as his was prisoner in the Tower of London. This letter can still be found at the British Library in London. Today over 1 billion Valentine cards are being sent every year!
