I hope this post finds you having a wonderful February so far. Can you believe Valentine’s Day is just around the corner already!? This year is flyin’ by.
Have you ever wondered where the tradition of Valentine’s Day Cards came from? Well it has been rumored that the very first Valentine’s day card was sent by Saint Valentine himself. He sent it while he was imprisoned and waiting for execution by the Romans. It seems he was quite taken with a jailer’s daughter. And so just before his death he sent a letter and signed it Your Valentine.
The oldest known Valentine’s day card is kept at the British Library in London it is a poem written in French in the year 1415 by Charles Duke. He wrote it to his wife, while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London. I would actually love to see it, is amazing it has lasted this long.
So to celebrate this wonderful day of Love and Friendship, I decided to make my own Valentine’s Day Cards just for you.
I created 8 free Valentines day cards. Each one hand drawn and colored. They are great to print out and pass out to friends, teachers and loved ones or you can print them out punch a tiny hole in the top string them up and make a cool banner out of them.
