Valentine’s Day reportedly had its origins in both Christian and Roman cultures. Friday is Valentine’s Day and I could spend three columns on the history of this day of love. I could, but I won’t.
I remember as a child in elementary school passing around Valentine cards while sitting at our desks. It almost became a contest of who with the most Valentines was the most loved. I got my fair share. We also enjoyed those little hard heart candies with sayings on them; I think they are still around. That seemed to be a simpler time.
