For Valentines Day from this year we’ve decided to look into the inner workings of February 14th.
The day itself is believed to have begun its life as a form of liturgical celebration of an early Christian saint. In the Middle Ages courtly love is said to be the reason why the day is now so associated with romance, as love was declared through the sending of flowers, hand-written notes or confectionery gifts. It has since evolved to become an annual generator of mass-produced greetings cards, chocolates and flowers.
