Happy Valentine’s Day!

Feb 11, 2011
Here are some fun facts we found about  Valentine’s Day:
 

• Many believe the 'X' symbol became synonymous with the kiss in medieval times. People who couldn't write their names signed in front of a witness with an 'X.' The 'X' was then kissed to show their sincerity.

• Girls of medieval times ate bizarre foods on St. Valentine's Day to make them dream of their future spouse.

• In the Middle Ages, young men and women drew names from a bowl to see who would be their Valentine. They would wear this name pinned onto their sleeves for one week for everyone to see. This was the origin of the expression "to wear your heart on your sleeve."

• In 1537, England's King Henry VII officially declared February 14th the holiday of St. Valentine's Day.
 
• The most fantastic gift of love is the Taj Mahal in India. It was built by Mughal Emperor Shahjahan as a memorial to his wife.
 
• In the US, 64 percent of men do not make plans in advance for a romantic Valentine's Day with their sweethearts.
