Be mine

A lot of cynics think that Valentine's day was created by the major card companies to generate booming sales once a year, but that's not true. Honororing love (and fertility) has been around since the days of ancient Rome with pagan rituals. Another interesting fact about this date, February 14th, is that Alexander Graham Bell applied for his patent on the telephone on Valentine's Day in 1876. Who knew?
