Here are a few FACTS to share about Valentine's Day today... 

Sweethearts, the little candy hearts with words on them, have been around for over 150 years. They're made by the same company that makes Necco Wafers.  They were invented in 1866.  So, 152 years ago.

Because of Valentine's Day, more pregnancy tests are sold in March than any other month. The biggest surge is near the end of March, about six weeks from now.

And the origins of Valentine's Day are actually kind of dark because the real life St. Valentine was brutally executed by the Romans.  Around 270 A.D., he was beaten to death AND beheaded for marrying people in secret. 

Happy Valentine's Day everybody!
