A Bit of Heart History
The heart has long been used as a symbol to refer to the spiritual, emotional, moral, and in the past also intellectual core of a human being. As the heart was once widely believed to be the seat of the human mind, the word heart continues to be used poetically to refer to the soul, and stylized depictions of hearts are extremely prevalent symbols representing love.

Many classical philosophers and scientists, including Aristotle, considered the heart the seat of thought, reason or emotion, often rejecting the value of the brain.
In European traditional art and folklore, the heart symbol is drawn in a stylized shape. This shape is typically colored red, suggesting both blood and, in many cultures, passion and strong emotion. The hearts have constituted, since the 15th century, one of the red suits in most playing card decks. The shape is particularly associated with romantic love; it is often seen on St. Valentine's Day cards, candy boxes, and similar popular culture artifacts as a symbol of romantic love.

All you need is love..... de de de da

What better way to warm your heart in this cold spell than Valentine's? Yes it's coming to that time when the focus is all about LOVE. So if you are lucky enough to have that someone special in your life, think about ways to show then how much you care...... a romantic walk with small surprises along the way, a cozy living room picnic after the kids have gone to bed, breakfast in bed..... surprise them with that cheeky gift they have had their eye on for a while.

If you haven't found that special someone, now is a perfect time to gather with your faithful friends and embrace in some serious appreciation. Plan a night of fun, go dancing, kick back and embrace Singleton....
