The History of Valentine’s Day

Friday, February 16th, 2007 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

The History of Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day has always been something I’ve celebrated. From the days of my childhood when I made my parents Valentine cards with red construction paper, crayons, glitter and glue to today when I drop a Valentine’s card in the mail for everyone I care about. It’s a day where we celebrate the ones we love, whether they are our significant other or our children. But, where did it all start? Let’s find out, shall we?!

You’ll find the navigation on this site to be very easy. It’s all there for you on the side menu. The sections are:

The History of Valentine’s Day – Here you will learn the History of Valentine’s Day in three parts. You’ll learn about St. Valentine, Cupid and more. Are you ready to dig in?

Valentine’s E-cards – Don’t have the time or money to go get a Valentine’s card for that special someone? Or do you want to send a loved one a Valentine’s message? Well, now is your chance! Choose one of the images you’d like to use as your Valentine card. Next, click the Create a Title tab, where you can fully customize what your card says on the front and how it looks. Then go to Personalize E-card, write your message and put in the e-mail address for you and your recipient. Now, all you have to do is go to the Preview and Send tab and make sure it all looks right and then send it away to your Valentine!

Featured Valentine’s Clips – Here you can watch 10 clips about Valentine’s Day and even take a quiz on the holiday. Each video is on a different topic, ranging from the History of Valentine’s Day to an Ice Wedding to the Sexual Revolution. Check it out and then take the quiz!

Did You Know – This section is a great collection of little tidbits and facts about Valentine’s Day that you may not know. It’s divided into categories: Looking for Love, Be Mine, Candy is Dandy, Flowers and Jewelry. You can even find the names of some romantic sounding places here.

Great Romances – Here you can read all about the romances of three historical couples. The couples are The Trumans, The Brownings and the Robinsons. Here you will learn how Elizabeth and Robert started their relationship through letters, how Bess and Harry found each other again nine years after they graduated high school together and how Jackie and Rachel met at UCLA. You’ll see how their romances flourished and how they were each other’s strength.

And last, but not least, Love Letters from the President – Here you can read actual love letters written by President Harry Truman to the love of his life, Bess. The letters start from the early days of the courtship through their marriage and life at the White House.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
