There are many different versions of where Valentines Day came from and the reason behind sending out Valentines Cards.
Then there is another possible scenario with Valentine being a prisoner and eventually found himself in love with the jailer’s daughter. The love letters he sent to her were signed “From your Valentine.”
Of course there are many more scenarios but it really doesn’t matter where this tradition comes from.
Valentines Day has become an opportunity for lovers to express their feelings. Originally the tokens of love were gifts of flowers and poems which were delivered orally.
The earliest known examples of written Valentine cards are the love letters the imprisoned Duke of Orleans sent to his wife in 1415.
Paper Valentines and Valentine Cards started popping up in the 1850′s.
Today more people send cards for Valentine’s Day than for any other holiday except Christmas.
You can get personal cards from retail stores, impersonal cards of the internet, or better yet you can send a FREE card from me.
I have an online system that allows you to pick your card, type your message, sign your name and then click SEND. Your card gets printed, stuffed in an envelope, has a stamp put on and then sent in the mail all for about 1/5 th of the price of a regular card.
But as I mentioned above. You can send one me for FREE. Just click on this link www.sendoutcards.com/mnelson, then click #2 where it says Send a FREE card and then follow along.
Enjoy sending your card!
