Do you remember when you were a kid and got to make little mailboxes or pockets in your class to hold all of your Valentine’s Day cards? They usually involved red construction paper, glitter, doilies, and enough glue to ensure that you had sticky hands all day. Then on Valentine’s Day, or the day of the class party, each child would go from desk to desk delivering their cards to their classmates. Picking out the perfect card to give your friends at school was a big deal. You didn’t want to give the boys the pretty ones, except the boy you liked. And he got a special card – as if he was supposed to decode that “I pick you, Valentine.” was a secret message that you’d get married and live happily ever after two decades later. (PS – I don’t even remember the names of some of my first grade classmates – never mind marry them!) It was always great fun though, and a tradition that is still carried on today, even though the cartoon characters on the cards have evolved over the years.
Here are some of the Top Valentine’s Day cards of the season.
