Spread The Love

 

We here at West Coast Weather Vanes hope that your lives are filled with love for Valentine’s, and every other day also!

The heart has long been used as a symbol to refer to the spiritual, emotional, moral, and, in the past, intellectual core of a human being. The heart was once widely believed to be the seat of the human soul and the word heart continues to be used poetically to refer to the soul. Stylized depictions of hearts are used as 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.
