Why do we give cards for Valentine’s Day?

Valentine’s Day Traditions

Last week we learned about the sweet history of giving chocolate for Valentine’s Day, but what about greeting cards? Turns out this tradition has a long history as well. In 1850, Esther Howland was one of the first people to begin creating and selling cards for Valentine’s Day. She was an artist and a publisher whose sweet notes quickly became popular. By the early 20th century, Valentine’s Day cards were being mass-produced – and thus a tradition was born!
