The Legend of Valentine Day

As we know, February has long been celebrated as a month of romance. We regard February 14th as the St. Valentine’s Day, which is not only celebrated across the United States but also in other places around the world. It’s a day to exchange gifts between loved ones, expressing how much you care about him or her. But do you know where did the tradition come from?

There are several versions about the history of Valentine Day, but all related to the vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition.

One of the legends suggests that Valentine is a person who may have been killed for attempting to help Christians escape harsh Roman prisons, where they were often beaten and tortured. In the prison, Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” greeting himself after he fell in love with a young girl–possibly his jailor’s daughter–who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter signed “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still in use today. So some people believe that Valentine’s Day is celebrated to commemorate the anniversary of Valentine’s death.

Valentine’s Day Cards

Valentine day symbolizes the gesture of respect, admiration, and love. Every year, there are approximately 150 million Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged in the USA, making Valentine’s Day the second most popular card-sending holiday after Christmas. On this special day, people often send loved ones with Valentine’s Day Cards and candy, flowers or other gifts. Today, there are literally thousands of cards on the market to choose from, but sometimes it would be better to give your special someone a more personalized card made just for them. So where to start? Below are a few Valentine Card Ideas to inspire you.

Valentine’s Day Ideas

1. Your color scheme.

Traditionally, Valentines Day cards are red and white, but other colors like pink, gold or black are also creeping into the mix as crafters push the boundaries.

For a truly unique Valentine card idea, try a completely different selection of colors like brown and blue or green and blue. Using your special someone’s favorite colors to make your card can help make them feel extra special.

2. Your embellishments.

Whatever you choose, make sure it matches your color scheme and is something the recipient of your card will appreciate. If your special someone hates teddy bears and roses, do not use them. If you are struggling for Valentine card ideas, think about what the recipient loves to do. If he loves to fish, perhaps you could use a fishing hook with a heart on the end or if he likes football, you could feature a football with a heart in the middle. Featuring your special someone’s favorite hobbies and activities will help express just how much you care about them.

3. Choose a card maker
