As Valentine’s Day approaches, have you got any ideas on how to spoil your loved one?  The Best of Lichfield has some great ideas, but first, let us share three fascinating facts that you may not know about Valentine’s Day:

  1. In Victorian times it was considered bad luck to sign a Valentine’s Day card.
  2. Based on retail statistics, about 3 per cent of pet owners will give Valentine’s Day gifts to their pets!!! Are you one of them?
  3. In the Middle Ages, young men and women drew names from a bowl to see who would be their Valentine. They would wear this name pinned onto their sleeves for one week for everyone to see. This was the origin of the expression "to wear your heart on your sleeve."
