Valentine's Day in the Regency 💘

Listening to satellite radio this past weekend, I was amused to hear the DJ claiming that greeting card companies created Valentine's Day. It was an invented narrative on how poor employees of the card companies came up with the idea to meet sales quotas from their higher executives.

I was laughing out loud at the imagined history.

The truth is letters and cards have been sent for hundreds of years to celebrate Valentine's. In fact, the oldest surviving Valentine message resides at the British Museum and dates back to 1415.

So what did men and women of the Regency do for Valentine's Day? Watch my new Youtube short to find out (captions included if you need to play it on silent)!
