I love knowing random facts, so for Valentine’s Day I put together 10 historical facts about the holiday I feel are (odd enough to be) worth knowing*. These are a hodgepodge of historical facts, several coming from Victorian-era articles and so the dates of some of these traditions are unclear. Let’s focus more on what they did. Because wow. The egg one will probably take your breath away (you’ll see why). I hope you’ll enjoy the read!
*My definition of ‘worth knowing’ means odd knowledge I can retain and then share with family, friends, and strangers to either clear a room or find like-minded souls.
