The origin of Valentine’s Day is steeped in mystery but legend has it that Saint Valentine sent the first Valentine’s card while locked away in prison after trying to help Christians escape the harsh Roman prisons.

The valentine’s card he sent out was to a young woman who just happened to be his jailer’s daughter.  She visited with him secretly during his confinement. Because they didn’t have long to talk, he would hand her a small card with loving messages, and the beginning of what we now call “Valentine’s Cards”.

Saint Valentine sent his final card the morning of his execution with the scribbled words,  “Forever in life and death, your Valentine”.
