America’s Story is a great site that focuses on many different aspects of American history and is geared toward younger students. It is part of the Library of Congress site which always houses a vast amount of important information. On this site you can learn about the origins of Valentine’s Day, so you’ll be ready to celebrate this Saturday. Many of our celebrations have roots in early Roman times, and Valentine’s Day is no exception. Watch a short video called “The Kiss” that Thomas Edison produced in 1900. There is also a picture of a display window at a candy store in 1948 showing the same types of candies we can buy today for our special Valentine.
