Valentine's Day history

"Roses are red, violets are blue." Cupid season is here again. Some stores started stocking Valentine's Day merchandise right after Christmas. As you shop for cards, candy, flowers and stuffed animals, remember this day goes way back in history and has to do with St. Valentine. Charlie Brown, The Simpsons and movies like "The Notebook" and "Valentine's Day" keep this day top of mind for us after all these years.
