Here are some fun facts about V-Day from Real Simple Magazine

  • Today’s tradition of trading love notes on February 14 became popular in England in the 17th century.
  • The first box of chocolates was introduced by Richard Cadbury in 1868.
  • The oldest known valentine card dates back to the 1400s. Charles, duke of Orleans, sent it to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London.
  • So-called vinegar valentines, which carried insults like “Ugly, Fat, and Forty,” were popular in the 19th century. They were sent anonymously on the 14th.
  • “Be Mine,” one of the original messages on Necco’s Sweethearts candies when they debuted, still appears every year. Recent additions? “IM Me” and “Go Girl.”
