ONLINE – Bites and Bits of History
Tokens of Affection: Historic Valentine Greetings

January 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Continuing in an ONLINE video format, our first Bites and Bits of History lunchtime program of the Winter Series is debuting Thursday, January 21 at Noon, on our YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/YRa6II9444c.

Every year on February 14, Valentine’s Day celebrates love and romance. People typically express their affections with greetings and gifts. We’ll share the love a bit earlier in January but explore the ancient origins of the holiday, its religious connotations, and the symbols that became synonymous with the celebration. The presentation features an array of historic Valentine cards from the MVHS Collection.

Jessica Trickett, MVHS Collections Manager, will be our main presenter.
