The REAL history of Valentine's Day

An article posted on Newswise looks at the history - and myths - of Valentine's Day. "Though it may be swathed in pink fluffy confections, Valentine’s Day is far from sugar sweet. Before you dig into that box of chocolates, here’s the real history behind all the candy and flowers."

Topics discussed include:

  • February
  • Cards
  • Hearts
  • Cupid
  • Chocolates
  • Flowers
  • Saint Valentine

I don't think many people

I don't think many people know the real history behind valentines days and would be surprised to know what it actually is. Buying gifts for it is completely different then looking for mothers day gifts which is a holiday thats pretty simple to figure out what it's for.
