The History of Valentine's Day

While looking into the history of Valentine's Day today and found some interesting videos over on the History Channel's website. They have videos on the history of the Valentine's Day card, Cupid, the St. Valentine's Day Massacre and how our favorite treat is made, CHOCOLATE! Take a look and I hope you have a day full of love tomorrow!

O my Luve's like a red, red rose
That's newly sprung in June;
O my Luve's like the melodie
That's sweetly played in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry:

Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun;
I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only Luve,
And fare thee weel awhile!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho' it ware ten thousand mile.

-Robert Burns
