Why is February so special? No one really knows! The history of Valentine’s Day itself lies shrouded in mystery! It contains bits and pieces from both Roman traditions and Christianity. The Catholic Church had several saints, named either Valentine or Valentinus. All of them legend has it were involved somehow in defending the underdog, or fighting for the rights of people who have been done an injustice, usually in relationship to love! There is a terrific article talking in depth about the history of Valentine’s Day at http://www.history.com/topics/valentines-day/history-of-valentines-day.
Valentines - Olde Rhinebeck Inn
The tradition of sending Valentine cards really began in the 1850’s, when Esther Howland, a graduate of Mount Holyoke College, and native of Worcester, MA began mass producing them. She was known as “The Mother of the Valentine”. Her original cards were made with ribbons, pictures and real lace.
