February 12, 2013
By Shyla Stump of Thomas Nelson HS




  •  The greeting card association estimates that approximately one billion valentine's are sent annually world-wide, making it the second highest card sending holiday, behind Christmas.
  • St. Valentine's Day was declared an official holiday in 1537 when England's King Henry VIII declared it for the first time.
  • The name Valentine comes from the Latin word valor, meaning worthy.
  •  February 14th was long associated with fertility and love even before St. Valentine lived. It was the day that birds traditionally chose their mates.
