Well here it is. My Blog Hop Competition
So Let's Make it a fun one
This blog hop is based around Valentines Day so I'm making my post about Valentine Cards.
Be My Valentine
In the spirit of this time of the year, let me share some love with you.
But how did the tradition of sending Valentine’s Cards begin? Let me offer one theory.
Way back in medieval times, there was a belief that birds started mating on February 14.
Maybe birds have some kind of inbuilt calendar.
In 1415, Charles, Duke of Orleans wrote love letters to his wife during his stay in prison. It’s possible these were the first Valentine messages. Later, during 16th century messages written on coloured paper, tinted with ink. Verses were often in Acrostic form, spelling the lovers name. A bit different to Hallmark!
However upon searching I found a history lesson
Now onto a bit of fun
And Finally as they say ...
Can you remember your first Valentine's Card?
Mine was from my first boyfriend, and inside he drew a map to his house lol!
