Interesting Valentine’s Day facts

Valentines Day… is of course February 14th. Here are some interesting facts for you to ponder this coming Valentine’s Day.


  •  Every year around 1 billion Valentine cards are sent across. After Christmas it’s the single largest seasonal card-sending occasion.
  •   Teachers receive the most Valentine’s Day cards, followed by children, mothers, wives, and then, sweethearts.
  •   Children between ages 6 to 10 exchange more than 650 million Valentine’s cards with teachers, classmates, and family members.
  •   Of the 73% of people who buy Valentine’s Day flowers are men, while only 27 percent are women.


In the Middle Ages young men and women drew the names from a bowl to see who would be their Valentine. They would wear this name pinned on their sleeves for one week. This was done so that it becomes easy for other people to know your true feelings. This was known as “to wear your heart on your sleeve”.


>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<

   Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson go on a camping trip.  After a good dinner and a bottle of wine, they retire for the night, and go to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes wakes up and nudges his faithful friend. He says, “Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.” Watson looks up and says, “I see millions and millions of stars, Holmes.” “And what do you deduce from that?” asks Holmes.

   Watson ponders that for a minute.  He then says, “Well, Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets Holmes. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.  Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful, and that we are a small and insignificant part of the universe. But what does it tell you, Holmes?” Holmes is silent for a moment. “Watson, you idiot!” he says.  “Someone has stolen our tent! You can see the stars.”
