Love Is In The Air

Today is Valentines Day, the day that romantics and lovers celebrate. Its the day to let your other half know you still care or to send that special person, who maybe doesn't even know you exist, a token of your unrequited love.

Here are 5 Valentines Day facts -

1. The red rose is associated with Valentines as it was the goddess of love Venus' favourite flower.
2. Over 9 million red roses are sent in the UK today.
3. The first Valentines card was sent in 1415 by Charles, Duke Of Orleans, to his wife.
4. Valentines Day is worth £2.3 billion in the UK.
5. The Heart is linked with Valentines as it is considered the source of all emotions.

And one final thing... Phoebe will you be my Valentine? X
