You Won't Believe What Valentine's Day Was Like Through The Ages!

From chocolate & buttercups to Netflix & handcuffs, things certainly have changed over time!

  1. 1

    The 1940's

    Awwww, would ya look at that? Back in the day things were so innocent. Un-tire-ing devotion? You "auto" care? Add some flowers and chocolate and what do you have? Something #Priceless

  2. 2

    The 1950's

    Uh-oh; looks like Lil' Johnny Rocket's got more on his mind than finishing that milkshake! He wants to kiss her so bad, but he'll settle for an intense public hand-holding display this V-Day.

  3. 3

    The 1960's

    Guy: "Darling, don't you think we're running out of time? I'm 20 and you're 18, you'll only be fertile for so long - let's start a family"! Girl: "What are those hippies smoking over there"?

  4. 4

    The 1970's

    In this era, people were just happy to be together and materialism/societal stigmas took a back seat to breaking the norm. Valentine's Day experienced more peace & love than ever before.

  5. 5

    The 1980's

    Knock knock, it's consumerism! With the advent of modern television and attractive advertising, people were buying up whatever was hot like never before. Lingerie and jewelry became the standards in addition to flowers and chocolate.

  6. 6

    The 1990's

    Back to the innocence, our V-day cards revolved around premo 90's media and were almost too awesome for their own good! The picking out of which card series was the hardest part of this distant memory. Good times!

  7. 7

    The 2000's

    With the internet getting mainstream, style, culture, and originality are all easily visible and anybody and everybody can catch on. These kids don't even know how cute they are, but their parents knew exactly how cute this would be from tumblr.

  8. 8

    2010 & Beyond

    You already know what that means; Netflix & Chill! Whether you're single or in a relationship, it works with anything! Romanticism has definitely taken a back seat these days and V-Day dates have turned into pre-arranged one-night stands. Tech has provided an instant fix to our loneliness, but what about the day after V-Day?
