Valentine's Day

In medieval times, if you wanted to demonstrate your love, you did so by presenting the recipient of your affection with a Luckenbooth brooch.  This silver brooch consisted of entwined hearts with a crown on top.

 

The name is derived from the Luckenbooth or "Locking Booths" – small shops that were a regular feature on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile.
