Valentine’s Day 2016 FUN FACTS

Valentine’s Day also means it’s the 13th Anniversary of FINS Bradley Beach!
What better way to spend Valentine’s Day than sharing Nachos, Smoothies, and a Hawaii 5-0 with your sweetie?
The most popular theory about Valentine’s Day origin is that Emperor Claudius II didn’t want Roman men to marry during wartime.
Bishop Valentine went against his wishes and performed secret weddings. For this, Valentine was jailed and executed. While in jail he wrote a note to the jailor’s daughter signing it “from your Valentine.”
Many believe the X symbol became synonymous with the kiss in Medieval times.
People who couldn’t write their names signed in front of a witness with an X. The X was then kissed to show their sincerity.
By the Middle Ages, young men and women drew names from a bowl to see who would be their Valentine.
They would wear this name pinned onto their sleeves for one week for everyone to see.
This was the origin of the expression “to wear your heart on your sleeve.”
Physicians of the 1800’s commonly advised their patients to eat chocolate to calm their pining for lost love.
In response to this growing trend, Richard Cardbury produced his first box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day in the same century.
– More than 35 million heart shaped boxes of chocolates will be sold for Valentine’s Day.
– 189 million stems of roses are sold in the U.S. on Valentine’s Day.
