Interesting Valentines Day Trivia

There are many other traditions and superstitions associated with romance activities on Valentine’s day including:

  • The first man an unmarried woman saw on 14th February would be her future husband.
  • If the names of all a girl’s suitors were written on paper and wrapped in clay and the clay put into water, the piece that rose to the surface first would contain the name of her husband-to-be.
  • If a woman saw a robin flying overhead on Valentines Day, it meant she would marry a sailor. If she saw a sparrow, she would marry a poor man and be very happy. If she saw a goldfinch, she would marry a rich person.
