Valentine's Day - love is in the air!
Every year, the fourteenth day of the month of February has millions across the world presenting their loved ones with candy, flowers, chocolates and other lovely gifts. In many countries, restaurants are seen to be filled with couples who are eager to celebrate their relationship and the joy of their togetherness through delicious cuisines.
Today, Valentine's Day is one of the major holidays in the U.S. and has become a booming commercial success. According to the Greeting Card Association, 25% of all cards sent each year are "valentine"s. The "valentines", as Valentine's Day cards are better known as, are often designed with hearts to symbolize love. The Valentine's Day is now celebrated in almost all the world. One of the earliest "valentines" was sent in 1415 AD by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife during his imprisonment in the Tower of London. The card is now preserved in the British Museum.
I'm really curious to see the cards made by the 2ºA EM tomorrow! Tell you about it later!
And what about you, have you already sent your Valentine's Card today?
