SOCIETY DISPLAY CASE
Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’ Day is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14. It originated as a Western Christian liturgical feast day honoring Saint Valentine and is recognized as a significant cultural and commercial celebration in many regions of the world, although it is not a public holiday anywhere in the world.
The day first became associated with romantic love in the 14th century England. It evolved into the celebration we have today where lovers send flowers, candy and greeting cards known as “Valentines”
Valentine’s Day symbols are the heart, dove, and the winged Cupid. Red is the color of Valentine’ Day.
Traditionally school children have decorated Valentine boxes in their classrooms to give and receive cards.
The Mont Alto Historical Society has filled their case with a display of Valentine’s that may remind you of a kinder time in years past. We hope you enjoy this winter exhibit.
