What are not in dispute are many fun facts surrounding Valentine’s Day. Did you know…?

More than 36 million heart-shaped boxes of chocolate are sold for Valentine’s Day each year?

About 8 billion candy hearts will be produced this year; that’s enough candy to stretch from Rome, Italy to Valentine, Arizona 20 times and back again?

In the Middle Ages, young men and women drew names from a bowl to see who their valentines would be? They would wear these names on their sleeves for one week. To wear your heart on your sleeve now means that it is easy for other people to know how you are feeling.

The Italian city of Verona, where Shakespeare’s lovers Romeo and Juliet lived, receives about 1,000 letters addressed to Juliet every Valentine’s Day?

About 1 billion Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged in US each year. That’s the largest seasonal card-sending occasion of the year, next to Christmas.
