Valentines Greetings / January 8, 2019 / Bobbi Oneil.
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. Of all of the gifts and love notes exchanged on Valentines Day the most popular item is candy and for good reason.
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.
The supplies of goodies are unlimited and the candies nestled in elaborate beribboned boxes are like gold. For some reason perhaps the value of the cocoa and chocolate products in previous centuries made the gift of candy a real prize. So when a young suitor showed up to his girls house with candy under his arm the object of his affections knew she was highly prized.
