VALENTINE’S DAY TRADITIONS

In ancient times, the heart was considered to be the source of all emotions, and so became a valentine symbol.

Centuries ago, if a lady wanted a man’s attention, she would drop her lace handkerchief. Thus, lace became linked with romance.

Children of old England sang door-to-door on Valentine’s Day and received candy, cookies, and money in return.

People in the Middle Ages drew names to see who their valentines would be, then pinned the names on their shirts. This inspired the phrase “to wear your heart on your sleeve”.

The red rose was said to be a favorite flower of Venus, the Roman goddess of love.

The oldest known valentines were sent in 1415 by the Duke of Orleans to his French wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London.
