Hallmarking of holidays obscures reason for the season

An estimated 1 billion Valentine cards are sent each year, according to the Greeting Card Association, a number second only to Christmas, with an estimated 2.6 billion cards being sent each year.

And what better way to say “I love you” than with a Hallmark greeting card and a $4.99 box of chocolates from Walgreens?

This festivity occurring every February has murky origins and many historians debate who the actual “Saint Valentine” was.
