Other traditions are of the more wishful variety, with people of 17th century England putting leaves on their pillow on the eve of Valentine’s Day in the hope that they would dream of their future husband.
In Germany, pigs are a staple of Valentine’s Day cards, while in Brazil, it is tradition for single ladies to gamble on love by writing down the names of people they are attracted to and drawing a name out of a hat.
Other traditions involve giving objects to show affection, like in Wales, where love spoons are given to the one someone desires.
