Valentine’s Day was originally known as “St. Valentine’s Day” and there were apparently three St. Valentines connected with February 14th. As they were Christian saints, none were around as early as the Stone Age. But the Hanna-Barbera marketing department didn’t let a little thing like history get in the way of making money.
Reader Billie Towzer sent me these Flintstones’ Valentines. I don’t suspect Billie did it to be my Valentine, but to give you a couple of examples what was/is available for the romantically (and maybe ananchronistically) inclined. The last one’s a little too Let-the-Sunshine-In cutsey-poo for me.
