Free Valentine’s Day printable cards from Little Passports

free printable valentines day cards

For many years one of our holiday traditions was to travel the world at Christmas time and discover how other countries and cultures celebrated Christmas.  Of course having a whole group of international students at the college to help us with our discoveries was a huge help – and one I no longer have.  So, where else would I turn but to Little Passports!
