Valentines Day

It’s a day some look forward to with excited anticipation and secret hope and others with dread and despair. What could this day be? Well, it’s Valentine’s Day, 14 February, the red-letter day of love when the shops are full of red hearts, red roses, chocolates, cards, and many gift ideas to share with that special person in your life. Did you know Americans spend nearly $30 billion on Valentine’s Day each year? The first Hallmark Valentine’s Day cards were sold in 1913, and today, about 145 million Valentine’s cards are given each year. A surprising statistic about Valentine’s Day is that teachers receive the most Valentine’s cards annually of anyone in the world. Now, since Valentine’s Day is the second biggest holiday spent after Christmas, let’s take a deeper look at the fascinating facts of how this day of celebrating love began.
