Valentine History

Valentine’s Day is like most modern holidays – a mixture of past celebrations that becomes so tangled no one’s sure why we do the things we do to celebrate! I think y’all may be surprised about some of the origins of this day of love.  Check out the links below for a Valentine’s Day history lesson.  ; )

Valentine Posts

Last year I did several posts for Valentine’s Day crafts, decor, & recipes.  Just in case you missed them, here’s a recap!

If you’re looking for an easy super today {or anyday!} this Sesame Sweet & Sour Chicken with Faux Roasted Broccoli & Lo Mein is one of my families favorites.  I included a look at my Valentine mantel at the end of the post.  <3

You can find out how I made the metal stitched heart on the mantel by clicking the link or the picture below.  I made the flower from paper towel tubing & there’s a similar one in this post.

Need a sweet for your sweetheart?  This red velvet cupcake recipe should fit the bill!  I know I wish I had one right now! : D

Ever wonder what to do with all those Valentine cards?  I made this card memento binder to hold some of the ones my husband and I have collected over the years.  This would work for any greeting cards you want to save.

Valentine Clicks & Free Printable

I used this love in 30 different languages post from Quizlet as a reference to make this printable.  You can check the link for pronunciations & word origins.  Some of them were spelled the same, but pronounced differently, so I have a few less than 30 on the printable.  ; )

    Oh what a sweet post 😊 I am really intrigued with the sloth Valentine’s and your card binder – I’m going there next 😁 thank you for the sweet printable – I like using words in different languages for different occassions/crafts , and am also interested in the origins and history to different celebrations, etc. For example, we don’t celebrate Halloween in the common sense, but the history behind it intrigues me and this is what I’ve taught my children. And happy Valentine’s to you too lovely 😊
