Happy Valentine’s Day, 1897.

Yesterday [2/14/1897] was the day of lovers and jokers, and it is called by the haole, St. Valentine’s Day (La o Sana Valenatine), or maybe it is Sana Valekino. It is a day that gifts are given between lovers with affection or perhaps with fun or humor.

(Makaainana, 2/15/1897, p. 1)
