Timely Tuesday: Words of Love

"Words are special and powerful. Let your special Valentine know how much you care by sending a card that you wrote yourself!"

“Words are special and powerful. Let your special Valentine know how much you care by sending a card that you wrote yourself!”

Sweet words of love probably have been uttered since the beginning of man — and woman — in some fashion. However, the Valentine’s Day card expressing sentimental, sweet and steamy messages have a long, two-centuries-old tradition.

The first mailed Valentine was in 1806. Collector Nancy Rosin has more than 10,000 Valentine cards in her collection, which she shares in this charming video clip: http://www.history.com/videos/valentine-cards#valentine-cards.

And although there are so many beautiful Valentine’s Day cards for sale, the sweet thoughts penned by your one true love are the best!
