Most cultures have used the heart symbol in some form. It is considered to be the center of thought, emotion, and the soul; the very center of one's being.

Valentine’s Day was established in 496 by Pope Gelasius to honor the martyred saint who aided lovers and performed secret marriages. It was most likely set in mid February to replace the pagan fertility festival of Lupercalia. It was not until much later, however, that the day became definitively associated with love.

Valentine greetings were popular as far back as the Middle Ages, though written Valentine’s didn’t begin to appear until after 1400. The oldest known valentine was a poem written in 1415 by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London.

Valentine’s Day gained popularity in the seventeenth century with simple love notes, often adorned with hearts. The Victorian obsession with elaborate greeting cards made Valentine’s Day into a heart-bedecked extravaganza, a custom continued by modern companies today.
