A Brief History of Valentine’s Day

17 Jan

Valentine’s Day is celebrated with much joy and enthusiasm in France.  In fact the history of Valentine’s Day has a strong history with France.  It has been said that Valentine’s Day Cards originated in France.  A young Frenchman, Charles, Duke of Orleans is said to have written the first written Valentine’s Day Cards. The Duke who was captured at the Battle of Agincourt in 1415 is said to have written a poem or ‘Valentine’ to his wife while imprisonment in the Tower of London.
