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.
Nabisco created the Animal Cracker Box with string handles for hanging on Christmas Trees in 1902.
DID YOU KNOW?
Charles Dickens began writing A Christmas Carol in October 1843 and completed it 6 weeks later, in December of that same year.
Few families in Victorian England owned an oven. Like the Cratchits, they would bring their goose or turkey to the local baker who would cook it for a small fee.
Bob Cratchit would have paid 7 shillings for the goose, 5 for the pudding and 3 for the onions, oranges, and sage. ( In the 1800s, a shilling was worth about 40 cents. ) Today, the cost of these items would be about $58.
