Sentiments of Love

armorial pierced heartDid you know that Valentine greetings were exchanged as far back as the Middle Ages?   In the 1400’s, written Valentine’s appeared and by the 17th century Valentines Day became a popular celebration as friends and lovers of all social classes exchanged small tokens of affection and handwritten notes.  The oldest known Valentine was a poem written by Charles, Duke of Orleans to his wife while he was imprisoned
in the Tower of London back in 1415.
In the 1900‘s, improvements in printing technology and cheaper postage rates made Valentines Day even more popular as ready made printed cards were readily available, making it even easier for people to send their greetings.
