Hamsa Secret Heart Pendant for Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is the day of love. On February 14, more than any other day of the year, romantic couples shower their better half with gifts and tokens of appreciation.
The day is popular in North and South America, Australia, South Korea and many countries in Western Europe. In the Philippines it is the most common wedding anniversary, and mass weddings of hundreds of couples take place on that date.
The holiday has expanded to expressions of affection among relatives and friends.
Many schoolchildren exchange valentines with one another on this day.
Why We Celebrate Valentine’s Day?
According to readers digest, Valentine’s Day started with the Catholic Church’s feast of St. Valentine’s Day, on the day he was executed by the roman emperor in 270 A.D.
Let’s begin with St. Valentine – or the Valentines. As the History Channel points out, there are a number of Valentines – nearly all of them martyrs – that are connected to the holiday. However, St. Valentine of Terni is the most famous, with a legend associated with him.
Under the rule of Claudius II, the Roman army relied largely on single men. In an effort to save lives, Valentine, who was the bishop of Terni at the time, married young couples after the emperor outlawed marriage for young men so they would be better soldiers, hence where the idea of celebrating love came from on the feast day.
Unfortunately for Valentine, the emperor didn’t take too kindly to his noble romanticism and beheaded the bishop near the outskirts of Rome.
Valentine’s Day – The Beginning
English poet Geoffrey Chaucer may have invented Valentine’s Day. The medieval English poet often took liberties with history, placing his poetic characters into fictitious historical contexts that he represented as real. No record exists of romantic celebrations on Valentine’s Day prior to a poem Chaucer wrote around 1375. In his work “Parliament of Foules,” he links a tradition of courtly love with the celebration of St. Valentine’s feast day–an association that didn’t exist until after his poem received widespread attention.
Whether or not Chaucer can be fully credited, it is true that he and fellow writer Shakespeare popularized the amorous associations surrounding the day. Soon, people began penning and exchanging love letters to celebrate Valentine’s Day, and by the early 1910s, an American company that would one day become Hallmark began distributing its more official “Valentine’s Day cards.” Flowers, candy, jewelry, and more followed, and the rest, of course, is history.
And where did the idea of chocolates come from? Well, apparently that, comes from good marketing. Richard Cadbury started designing ornate boxes for his chocolates to come in, including a heart shaped one that may have changed the industry forever.
Valentine’s Day Greetings
In Great Britain, Valentine’s Day began to be popularly celebrated around the 17th century. By the middle of the 18th, it was common for friends and lovers of all social classes to exchange small tokens of affection or handwritten notes, and by 1900 printed cards began to replace written letters due to improvements in printing technology. Ready-made cards were an easy way for people to express their emotions in a time when direct expression of one’s feelings was discouraged. Cheaper postage rates also contributed to an increase in the popularity of sending Valentine’s Day greetings.
Americans probably began exchanging hand-made valentines in the early 1700s. In the 1840s, Esther A. Howland began selling the first mass-produced valentines in America. Howland, known as the “Mother of the Valentine,” made elaborate creations with real lace, ribbons and colorful pictures known as “scrap.” Today, according to the Greeting Card Association, an estimated 145 million Valentine’s Day cards are sent each year, making Valentine’s Day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year.
The first Valentine’s Day card dates to 1415 when the Duke of Orléans sent a card to his wife while he was he was a prisoner in the Tower of London. In the United States, Valentine’s Day cards didn’t gain popularity until the Revolutionary War, when people took up the habit of writing handwritten notes to their sweethearts. It was only in the early 1900s that cards were mass produced for the holiday.
