And Who is this Cupid?
While some things can be learnt about the origins of Valentine's Day, something we don't know for sure is simply where or when we started celebrating amore, although there have been numerous stories informed over the years. I've read a few of the legends and myths and I wish to share them with you. I have my favorite. Now you choose yours.
The earliest known valentine gift still around today was a poem written by Charles, Duke of Orleans to his partner while he was locked up in the Tower of London. The welcoming, written in 1415, belongs to the manuscript collection of the British Library in London, England. According to the Greeting Card Association, an estimated one billion valentine cards are sent out each year, making Valentine's Day the second biggest card-sending vacation of the year. (An estimated 2.6 billion cards are sent out for Christmas.) The first business Valentine's Day greeting cards produced in the U.S. were developed in the 1840s by Esther A. Howland. Howland, referred to as the Mother of the Valentine, made fancy creations with genuine lace, ribbons and colorful images referred to as "scrap".

Promising review: "This game, if we should call it a game, is so wonderful. We opened the box and just randomly started choosing out cards. Some of the cards were quick and straightforward, while other were more thought provoking. We got some good laughs out of this and it was truly a refreshing change compared to our previous casual conversations. I see this can being very useful for couples who want to get to know each other but also for couples like us, who are so busy in our day-to-day with the work and kids. It gave us something different to talk about outside the typical operational 'how was your day' type of conversations." —Orit

Promising review: "This is a great every day beanie. I'm one of those people who doesn't feel right unless there's something on my head. I have this beanie in three different colors. It's my favorite. It sits on my head perfectly and slouches enough so it doesn't stick up in the back. I bought one after trying to find a beanie similar to Opie's in Son's of Anarchy. After finding that perfect one, I knew I needed more colors." —Allie
