All are now gone, but not forgotten. Better late than never! Here's a few facts about Valentine's Day. Originally credited to St. Valentine, a martyr, historians claim the occasion goes back too a Roman holiday called the "Feast of Lupercalia," and in England it was celebrated as early as 1446, when young men drew names for their valentines and wore them on their sleeves thus giving rise to the saying "He wore his heart on his sleeve." In 1840 printed valentines were started by Esther Howland, a college student at Worcester, Mass. She got her inspiration from an English Valentine and imported them. She set up an assembly line in her home with several girls and turned it into a $100,(')0 a year business. In 1890 Germany in- troduced the first mechanical valentines. The first comics we'e made in 1809 and became so obnoxious that several countries banned them. In America Charles J. Howard takes the credit from 1880 to 1910 and they were signed C.J.H. Valentine. Postcards were also a product of the 20th century. Kate Greenaway designed them for Marcus Ward and Co. of London, mostly children types, and later she became famous as a childrens illustrator. The Hallmark Museum in Kansas City, Missouri, houses over 50,000,000 valentinesin their fireproof building. >.
