Valentine’s Day Factoids

So you’re educated and feeling a little less dirty while admiring today’s sexy and rugged eye candy

While today may not be an official holiday, Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular in the year’s calendar.

Its origins are a mix of legends involving two Christian martyrs, a roman fertility rite, and the old notion that this is the time of year when the birds choose their mates.

What is sure is that Esther Howland of Massachusetts began selling the first mass produced valentines in the 1840s. Now, Valentine’s Day is one of the biggest occasions for the country’s greeting card shops, candy stores, and jewelers. Perhaps the busiest of all are the nation’s more than 48,000 florists, who sell $7.5 billion of flowers each year.
