Here are a couple fun facts...
1. In the Middle Ages, both men and women drew names from a bowl to see who their valentines would be. They would wear the names on their sleeves for a week. Now, to wear your heart on your sleeve means others can easily see your feelings.
2. Lovers are often unaware that the XXX kisses on cards goes back to early Christianity. In the days when few people could sign their name, a X was a legally binding signature. To emphasize their commitment to an agreement, people would kiss the X, similar to kissing the bible after swearing on oath.
