Valentine's Day always brings a rush of letters to the Valentine, TX post office, and this year is no different.

According to NewsWest 9, last year the post office saw over 12,000 love letters come through the post office and this year they are expecting the numbers to be somewhere in that area.

The way it works is the letters are addressed and stamped with first class postage to your special someone and then put into a bigger envelope and sent to the Valentine Post Office where they will post mark them with a unique design for that year.

The design comes from the Valentine school district and they choose one of the designs submitted by the students.

The post office then sends the design off to the U.S. Postal Service for approval, the approved design is then made into a rubber stamp that will be used to stamp all the love letters that year.

It is too late to get your Valentine's Letter stamped for this year but you can keep the address to get your love letter stamped for your Valentine next year by mailing it to:

VALENTINE, TX 79854-9998

The city chose the name Valentine because it was founded on February 14, 1882.
