Did you know...

Valentine's Day is named after St. Valentine and dates back to the 14th century? 

Though there are a few accounts of how this day was named after him, one of the more well-known versions is that he defied the emperor's orders and secretly married couples to spare the husbands from war.This is why the day is associated with love. 

The first actual written messages, or valentines started in the 1500's.

In the US, the first commercially printed valentine cards date back to the 1700's. 

 Valentine's Day is now recognized in many countries around the world, and it is the most common wedding anniversary in the Philippines, and mass weddings are quite common on Valentine's Day.  

Along with classes, we have some of the most beautifully hand-crafted gifts by local artisans-truly gifts of the heart. Stop by the Merc and you're sure to find something for that special someone.
