Have you ever wondered when was the first Valentine’s Day card written?
The first known Valentine is said to have been written in 1415 by Charles, Duke of Orleans to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London following his capture at the Battle of Agincourt. The greeting is part of the manuscript collection of the British Library in London, England.
Historians also say that Saint Valentine of Rome also sent a letter signed “From your Valentine”, to his sweetheart who was the jailer’s daughter a day before he was to be executed. This phrase is still popular among lovers.

Did you know that…
Origami is paper folding. The word comes from the Japanese ‘oru’ meaning ‘to fold’ and ‘kami’ meaning ‘paper’. It is generally regarded as Japanese, although it is very likely that other cultures independently evolved their own paper folding traditions.
Origami probably is as old as paper is! There was certainly a tradition in Japan (and probably also in China and Spain) as far back as the 16th century. This was likely to be the simple traditional models handed down from parent to child.
Special Origami paper is available which has the particular qualities that make it more suitable for folding, but almost any paper will do.
A DIY Origami Gift Box is a nice gift idea for any family members, and it’s not even difficult to make. Just follow the steps on Cut Out And Keep website:

Graduation is the act of completion and moving up to the next level.
There is usually a graduation from kindergarten to elementary school, from elementary school to junior high school and from high school to college. There are also graduations from medical, military or specialized schools.
There is typically a ceremony associated with graduation, where the graduate receives a diploma.
The ceremony represents the moving up from one level to another or the completion of study.
There is almost always a celebration for graduation day to recognize their accomplishment and completion of hard work – a gathering of friends and family, picnics or large parties.

Contrary to popular belief, Mothers’ Day was not conceived and fine-tuned in the boardroom of Hallmark.
The earliest tributes to mothers date back to the annual spring festival the Greeks dedicated to Rhea, the mother of many deities, and to the offerings ancient Romans made to their Great Mother of Gods, Cybele.
Christians celebrated this festival on the fourth Sunday in Lent in honor of Mary, mother of Christ. In England this holiday was expanded to include all mothers and was called Mothering Sunday.
In the United States, Mothers’ Day started nearly 150 years ago, when Anna Jarvis, an Appalachian homemaker, organized a day to raise awareness of poor health conditions in her community, a cause she believed would be best advocated by mothers. She called it “Mother’s Work Day.”
