In preparation for Valentine's day, we're expanding our romantic things to do online list. We've given some tips for finding unusual reasons to celebrate (including the fooaversary discussion from this blog). For example, for February 14th, why send a boring old Valentine's greeting when you could send a card celebrating:

  • The first trainload of oranges leaves Los Angeles (February 14, 1886)
  • Edward Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII, becomes the first member of the British royal family to ride in an automobile (February 14, 1896)
  • Aretha Franklin tapes "RESPECT" (February 14, 1967)

(facts gathered from the History Channel and Scopesys sites).

Update: we've made some sample cards for these alternate valentines.

oranges!
