27 Jan Dig: Hearts!
Hearts, hearts, hearts, everywhere you look. I swear they had them at Walgreens New Year’s Eve. I <3 you, you <3 me (it took me ions to figure out why people were texting me less than 3). It can all feel a little pushy, and where’s the heart in that? Still, I love the shape of the <3, and I love these unique interpretations of it.
Of course, I love my sweetheart, and my little sweethearts.
Valentine’s Day began in 496 AD, appointed by Pope Gelasius. Bring on the love poems!!
In 1797, a British publisher picked up on young men’s limitations in creating their own love sayings, and out came The Young Man’s Valentine Writer, which contained scores of suggested sentimental verses.
