Today there are much fewer families making Valentines and many more just buying a box of them to give out to their classmates with a simple signature on the back of them. This has happened mainly because of how commercialized the holiday has become. As manufacturing techniques have gotten better and more cost effective that is the way that American school children have gone. Before this in the 1960s a book of valentines could be purchased. Children could actually cut out the cards from the book personalize them with lace trim or even with candy and then send them on. But it wasnt long before children were ready to skip the cutting out part altogether. The Puns Who hasnt smirked at the cute sayings that are placed on the Valentines cards?
