Valentine’s Day some may think that this is just another Hallmark holiday – a day to buy chocolates in a heart shaped box, a dozen roses or dinner at an exclusive restaurant. However, Valentine’s Day does have a romantic history. In fact, the origin of the phrase “to wear your heart on your sleeve”642-427
came from the middle ages when young men and women would draw names out of a bowl to see who would be their valentine.Then, they would have to pin the name on their sleeves and wear it around for a week. Although, this is not a tradition anymore, many Americans are still finding that special someone to call their “valentine”.
