Valentines Greetings / January 6, 2019 / Blanche Durham
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. Visitors worldwide pay annual subscriptions to her site especially for ecards featuring her beloved chocolate Labrador-Springer spaniel mix Chudleigh. He stars in such Valentine offerings as "Special Delivery" in which the pooch watches with growing despondence as a bird pulls from a mailbox a flurry of cards none of them for him until another loving dog arrives carrying a personal Valentine card.
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.
