Valentine’s Trivia

Valentine’s is definitely in the air.  Group coupon sites have been flooding my email with their alerts about varied interesting promos for this special occasion like discounted flower deliveries and dinner arrangements.  I’m sure lovers are on the lookout for such special deals so they can celebrate the day of hearts with their special someone without breaking their pockets.

Speaking of Valentines, do you know that British children in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries would put on their special occasion dresses and celebrate Valentine’s Day by going door-to-door singing songs and sometimes begging for cake or money?  This reminds me of children carolers during Christmas.
