Let’s start with our favorite purveyor of candy, See’s. They have been successfully providing Valentine love 365 days a year since 1921.

Singer Cher was working at See’s in 1962, when she met Sonny Bono; she quit her job to become his housekeeper.

Take a peek into a See’s Chocolate Factory.

In 1952 Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance spent a half day at the See’s Candies store on La Cienega Boulevard in Los Angeles, learning to dip chocolates and work the production line, in preparation for the “Job Switching” episode of I Love Lucy.

To see the complete “Job Switching” episode that is all about cooking, watch here.

ROSEN CANDY VALENTINE PLASTIC PUPPET.jpg

If you haven’t had enough there are some just plain weird and disturbing Valentine’s cards from the past. Buzz Feed collected this group and they are for real. Even more strange concepts as we experience double entendres, sick sentiments and even suicide threats around the desire for love. Sort of like Hollywood Pre-Code movies and hardly politically correct.

We love you for making this far.
