The Red Heart History

So Sunday is Valentine's Day. This got me to wondering where all this came from. It is such a big deal to some, and to others it is just another day. For new people dating, this could mean the start of the end if you forget to do something on this day for your "new love". I did some research and found a few interesting facts about this day of love.

Did you know?

This is the second biggest greeting card day of the year! Number one being Christmas. Over 150 million cards are purchased every year. I don't think they counted those kid Valentines the grade school kids would bring every year or that number would be through the roof, don't you think?
