Valentines Greetings / January 8, 2019 / Chris Burris
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.
Valentines Day cards are excellent for those who experience trouble in expressing their love and feelings for their lovers and family members. There are greeting cards for friends lovers family members and so forth today. In the earlier days valentine greetings were popularly used by lovers but today it is considered to be a precious occasion to express your love for your friends and family members too. There are custom cards for siblings too with humorous words and pictures. All these beautiful cards express the love respect and importance of relationships in your life. Today these cards have become a symbolic gesture of admiration love and devotion. One of the most popular lines in most of these cards is "Be My Valentine". Friends and family tend to feel special when they receive Valentines day photo cards.
In the United States St. Valentines Day is the second largest card giving holiday celebrated. Somewhere in the vicinity of 190 million lovers and friends greeting cards are sent each year. The holiday is said to come to us from ancient Roman Empire times when a priest who was forbidden to perform marriages for the young strapping healthy Roman soldiers defied Roman law and performed the marriages anyway. He was eventually caught and imprisoned and executed. Now thats romantic. Ever since the early 1700s Americans have been sending expression of friendship gratitude and love to those around them. In the early 1800s Esther A. Howland produced the first commercial Valentine greeting cards. And even though receiving a beautiful card is wonderful Americans have demonstrated by their purchases during this winter holiday that candy is still our sentiment of preference.
