The videos, which were created by longtime Warriors’ media partners, BAYCAT Academy, will also be shown during games at the Oracle Arena.

Black History Month and Buttons

Black History Month

Along with Valentine’s Day, February is the time of year that America and many other countries celebrate Black History Month. With it’s origins rooted in the 50 years following the abolishment of slavery, Black History Month has come a long way in recognizing the unique achievements of African American people from all around the globe.

It all started in 1915 when famed historian, Carter G. Woodson, and prominent minister and activist, Jesse Moreland, created the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History. The organization worked to identify and celebrate the accomplishments of black Americans and their African ancestors. In 1926, the ASNLH proposed the dedication of an entire commemorative week to their cause. The second week February was chosen to recognize what became known as national Negro History week, in honor of the birthdays of both Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglas.

In the years following the establishment of Negro History week, the event exploded across the country as the mayors of several major cities began designating yearly celebrations to mark the occasion. Nearly 40 years after the initial idea was first proposed, Negro History week had morphed into Black History Month with President Gerald Ford officially recognizing the yearly event in 1976.

In addition to recognizing the contributions of countless African Americans overall, each Black History Month features a specific theme. In 2018, Black History Month will honor “African Americans in Times of War”. It will mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I and highlight the involvement of black soldiers and civilians in all American conflicts from the American Revolution to current standing warfare.

Everyone Loves Buttons client, The NBA’s Golden State Warriors, (@Warriors) have ordered custom buttons to help celebrate Black History Month. The team has organized multiple in-game activities and community outreach efforts along with a T-shirt giveaway for 10,000 fans that took place at the first home game of the month. Every T-shirt and each button carries the phrase, “Black History is Golden”. The Warriors have also teamed up with BAYCAT Academy, a local non-profit that works to educate youth in digital media production, to create a selection of videos highlighting the work of Bay Area leaders and influencers.

You can still order custom buttons for your Black History Month event throughout the end of the month. We can apply any message that you’d like to broadcast to the world in support of the many historical achievements of black Americans or create a more current look with a #blacklivesmatter button or refrigerator magnet.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Everyone Loves Buttons®

It’s Valentine’s Day Every February 14th and it marks the day we celebrate with candy, flowers and cards. But how did this holiday come to be? The holiday is credited to Saint Valentine. St. Valentine is rather mysterious in the fact that many are unsure of what occurred during his life. Some say St. Valentine was a priest who arranged marriages in secret. This is because Emperor Claudius II had banned marriage due to married men being “bad soldiers.” Once Claudius found out about what Valentine was doing, he was thrown in jail and sentenced to death. While in jail, Valentine fell in love and gave the girl a letter on the day of his death titled “from your valentine.” The 14th of February is significant because that is the day he was killed.

Others say that St. Valentine tried to help christian s escape harsh Roman prisons. St. Valentine had lots of sympathy for these people because they were frequently beaten and tortured. St. Valentine was rumored to have been killed for helping these prisoners.

But how the day became a holiday is a completely different story. Some say every February 14th people commemorate the anniversary of his death. Others say A festival called Lupercalia was started by the Romans. This festival was in the middle of February and marked the beginning of spring. During this festival, boys drew the names of girls from a box. That name would be the boys girlfriend for the festival.

Then the church wanted to make the festival a Christian celebration and decided to combine that with the celebration of Saint Valentine. This name became used more commonly to celebrate the day of love.

While we don’t know the true story behind St. Valentine, Valentine’s Day is still a great time to celebrate love. Many gift their loved ones chocolate, roses and cards. Be unique and buy your loved ones something different, something they can cherish year round.

Show your spirit for Valentine’s Day, Everyone Loves Buttons has a large selection of different Valentines Day buttons. We have many conversation heart buttons that say things like “#Love”, “Be Mine” and “Real <3.” We also have heart eye emoticon buttons that are trendy and perfect for Valentine’s Day. And don’t forget to show your love for others with buttons that say “I ❤ My Kids” and “I ❤ My Dog.” Our specialty is Custom Buttons so if you have an idea, put it on a button!

With Everyone Loves Buttons you can express yourself and show your spirit for Valentine’s Day!

Love is in the Air

Can you guess which holiday has an estimated 150 million cards and gifts sent out and 448 million dollars spent on candy in the U.S?

You guessed it! The holiday of love, Valentine’s Day.

It is a day to celebrate romance and love between couples and friends. Valentine’s Day traditions include exchanging gifts, like chocolate or flowers dating back to both Christian and Ancient Roman times. We often see decorations with hearts, doves, Cupid with his bow and arrows, and everything is pink and red. Valentine’s Day is celebrated across the world in many countries other than the United States, like: Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France, and Australia.

The holiday is believed to be named after Saint Valentine. The most famous legend behind Saint Valentine is that Valentine was imprisoned and he sent the first ‘valentine’ to a young girl who was rumored to be the jailer’s daughter. Before he died, it is alleged that he wrote to the girl and signed the letter, “From Your Valentine”. Another legend that surrounds Saint Valentine is that Valentine was a priest who preformed marriages for young lovers in secret after Emperor Claudius II banned all young men from marrying.

The oldest known valentine was from Charles, Duke of Orleans to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London in 1415; this in now apart of the manuscript collection in the British Library located in London. Valentines became more common in the United States after the early 1700’s.

In many schools, children hand out Valentine’s Day cards and candy to their classmates. They even are encouraged to decorate boxes for the cards to be put in. Some people will throw parties to celebrate Valentine’s Day or even Anti-Valentine’s Day parties for those who are celebrating being single.

Whether you are celebrating the day of love or celebrating being single, what better way to do it that with a custom button or Zipper Pull®?

As always check us out on Facebook and Twitter and we just launched our #LuvMyButtons twitter campaign where you can get a coupon code for sharing your love of your buttons with us!
