    Thanks for the contest, Kimmerpuff.

    A random fact about Valentine's Day. . .

    In 2011, Iran banned Valentine cards, gifts, teddy bears, and other Valentine tokens as part of an Islamic republic backlash against the spread of Western culture. Additionally, some religious activists in India and Pakistan protest Valentine’s Day as a day of shame of lust. They view it as a Western holiday in which Westerners satisfy their “sex thirst.

    In Roman mythology, Cupid (Latin cupido, meaning "desire") is the god of desire, affection and erotic love. He is the son of goddess Venus and god Mars.

    In popular culture, Cupid is frequently shown shooting his bow to inspire romantic love, often as an icon of Valentine's Day. He is now in the current culture the personification of love and courtship in general. Thanks for the contest...good luck everyone!

    Q: What did the stamp say to the envelope on Valentine's Day?
    A: I'm stuck on you!

    Red hearts are a ubiquitous Valentine symbol. Red is traditionally associated with the color of blood. At one time, people thought that the heart, which pumps blood, was the part of the body that felt love. In fact, when the Egyptians mummified their dead for burial, they removed every organ but the heart because they believed the heart was the only part of the body necessary for the trip through eternity.

    The condom company Durex reports that condom sales are 20-30% higher around Valentine’s Day.

    In the middle ages, folklore held that birds gathered on February 14 to choose their mates for the year. This evolved over time for some to believe that if a woman saw a robin flying overhead on Valentine's Day she would marry a sailor. If she saw a sparrow, she would marry a poor man. If she saw a goldfinch, she would marry a millionaire.
