Happy Valentine's Day... A day of Love
Happy Valentine's Day everyone. I hope your day is filled with love and happiness.
Ever wonder just how things we so closely associate with a holiday come about? I sure do...take the classic conversation heart. A simple confection made by NECCO, the same company that makes the flat wafers we all use when making gingerbread houses at Christmas. Anyway, this little confection of love has been around for 144 years and has evolved with the times. In 2009, the candy hearts had phrases from the movie Twilight such as "Bite Me" "Dazzle" and "Live4Ever". This years introduction to the phrases available..."Tweet Me". Amazing how a little candy heart can say so much!
