Did you know?
Valentine’s Day has been celebrated since the fifth century but the first recorded Valentine’s card was sent during the 15th century. This was a poem written by a French medieval Duke named Charles to his wife in 1415. Charles penned a sweet note to his lover while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London at just 21 years old. One of the lines in the poem reads, “I am already sick of love, My very gentle Valentine.” Sweet!
