How Did The Tradition of Giving Out Valentines in Elementary School Start

The tradition of giving out valentines in elementary schools has its roots in both historical and commercial developments. The practice became particularly popular in the United States during the early 20th century.

  1. Historical Origins: The tradition can be traced back to the exchange of handmade valentines during the 18th and 19th centuries. People would create their own cards adorned with lace, ribbons, and sentimental messages. As printing technology advanced, commercially produced valentines became available, making it easier for people to share these tokens of affection.
  2. Commercialization and Mass Production: In the mid-19th century, Esther Howland, known as the “Mother of the American Valentine,” began mass-producing valentines. Her elaborate and artistic designs gained popularity, and she established a successful business selling valentines. This commercialization made valentines more accessible to the general public.
  3. School Celebrations: The tradition of exchanging valentines in schools gained momentum in the early 20th century. This was partly influenced by the idea of promoting friendship and camaraderie among children. The practice was also encouraged by teachers and educational institutions as a way to teach social skills, creativity, and expression of sentiments.
  4. Cultural Influence: The emergence of popular culture, including cartoon characters and themed valentine cards, further fueled the trend. Commercially produced valentine cards featuring popular characters and themes from children’s cartoons became widely available, making the exchange of valentines more exciting for kids.

Today, the tradition continues in many elementary schools, where students often exchange valentine cards, sometimes accompanied by small treats or candies, as a way to celebrate friendship and express positive sentiments towards classmates. It has become a cherished and lighthearted tradition that adds a sense of joy and camaraderie to Valentine’s Day celebrations in educational settings.
