Valentine’s Day has been a day to celebrate all things love for almost two hundred years now. According to Brandisty blog, “the writing of notes has long been a tradition of Valentine’s Day, dating back to the 17th century; it wasn’t until the 1820s that printed cards became fashionable. In fact, the first printed card wasn’t published in the United States until 1849 by Esther Howland in Worcester, MA.”
