The tradition of sending Valentine's Day cards dates back centuries. It is believed to have originated in ancient Rome during the festival of Lupercalia, which was celebrated in mid-February. During this festival, young men would draw names of young women from a box, and they would be paired together for the duration of the festival. This practice eventually evolved into sending handwritten love notes and greetings.
The first recorded Valentine's Day card was sent in the 15th century by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London. The tradition gained popularity in the 18th century when the printing press made it easier to mass-produce Valentine's Day cards. These early cards were often handmade and adorned with lace, ribbons, and intricate designs.
Sending Valentine's Day cards is a way to express love, affection, and appreciation for the people in our lives. It allows us to communicate our emotions in a thoughtful and tangible way.
