These Fun Facts about Valentine’s Day?

  • The most popular theory about Valentine's Day's origin is that Emperor Claudius II didn't want Roman men to marry during wartime. Bishop Valentine went against his wishes and performed secret weddings. For this, Valentine was jailed and executed. While in jail he wrote a note to the jailor's daugter signing it "from your Valentine".
  • In Victorian times it was considered bad luck to sign a Valentine’s Day card.
  • About 1 billion Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged each year. This makes it the second largest seasonal card sending time of the year.
  • In the Middle Ages, young men and women drew names from a bowl to see who would be their Valentine. They would wear this name pinned onto their sleeves for one week for everyone to see. This was the origin of the expression "to wear your heart on your sleeve."
  • Girls of medieval times ate bizarre foods on this day to make them dream of their future spouse.
  • In 1537, England's King Henry VII officially declared Feb. 14 the holiday of St. Valentine's Day.
