150 Million Cards…

Every year, 150 million Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged. This is just behind the number of Christmas Cards exchanged each year. Remember, as a child, being excited to share your cute little valentines with your classmates? The fun themes like “I dig you” with the Tonka trucks, or “You are super” with Superman? The girls would go for something like “Hoo Likes you” with an owl theme. How about that one kid that passed out the nose cards with a pencil shoved up it that said “I Pick You”. Yes, we all remember “that kid” in our class! Do you ever wonder what “that kid” is up to now as an adult?

As we grow up, our Valentines become more elaborate. We choose Cookie Bouquets, Cupcakes, Candies and Flowers to show our love. According to theatlantic.com, Americans spent $20 Billion in 2013 on Valentine’s Day. Whew, that’s a lot of love to share.

So are you on board with Valentine’s Day or do you feel like it’s just another Hallmark Holiday? Why do we celebrate it anyway? There are many myths and legends as to how Valentine’s Day came to be and who exactly is St. Valentine. I will not bore you with all of that, but if you are truly interested you can find some facts here at The Holiday Spot. http://www.theholidayspot.com/valentine/history_of_valentine.htm
