This Valentine's Day, You Could Win a Full Kitchen Countertop Restoration!
January 29, 2016
Valentine's Day hasn't always been hearts and roses. Over time it's been many things-- and why not? It's been around for centuries, starting as an ancient pagan celebration of fertility until the 5th century when Pope Gelasius took over the date to honor Saint Valentine, a priest beheaded in 270 AD for performing Christian marriages. Even then, the day was not associated with romance until the Middle Ages when poet Geoffrey Chaucer linked the day with love in his poem Parlement of Foules. "For this was on Saint Valentine's day, when every fowl comes there his mate to take".
And from there the holiday just kept growing.
From the handwritten notes friends and lovers exchanged in the 18th century, to the masses of printed cards that are swapped today, Valentine's Day comes second only to Christmas for the number of cards and gifts sent. An estimated 1 billion Valentine's Day cards and gifts are expected to be sent this year. That, my friends, is a lot of love. And who doesn't love love?
