Valentines Greetings / January 5, 2019 / Blanche Durham
Voltaire voiced a distinguished saying which is love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination. Many people continue to analyze the complexity of the simple saying and it gets many thinking and maybe affirming that it feels true. Other Valentine greeting card sayings that are very popular are as follows. A popular one by Fred Jacob is that love is like fine wine and it gets better with age. Another on that I found especially interesting is by Diane Ackerman which goes like this everyone admits that love is wonderful yet no one agrees on what it is. These are sayings that are truly food for thought. There are so many others that will amaze you while others will crack you up with laughter. Valentine and love are really synonymous and most sayings will be pegged on love.
Of all of the gifts and love notes exchanged on Valentines Day the most popular item is candy and for good reason. Each year on the same day in mid February (the 14th) candy is given to loved ones as a symbol of our love and commitment. There are thousands of candymakers across the country that hit high gear in the early weeks of the year to meet the incredible demands of candy lovers. Shops and stores offer big red hearts filled with a variety of sugar filled delicacies nuts and sweets nesting in tiny little organdy bags or just plain old candy bars; it doesnt matter as it is given with love. Thats right the holiday is all about love. It is the lovers holiday. This is the time of year for sweethearts to enthrall their honeys with words of devotion and gifts of sweets.
While both ecard websites offer a smattering of relatively simple free cards to send customers who want to deliver the best offerings have to pay for individual cards from Hallmark or a membership from American Greetings which might lead some to hesitate a moment and wonder if paying for e-greetings that feel slightly homogenized is really worth the money. That may explain why more and more people are flocking to boutique-style artistic ecard sites such as JacquieLawson.com and Ojolie.com to send animated ecards for important occasions like Valentines Day. English illustrator Jacquie Lawson first won a following back around the turn of the millennium for an animated Christmas card she sent out to friends which got passed around and transformed her almost overnight into a phenomenon.
