Why Are Hearts Drawn In The Shape That They Are?

Illustration of a heart symbolSince it is Valentines Day I figured this was a highly appropriate video to share with you.

We all know the universal symbol for the heart. Any one of us could probably do a decent job of drawing it if someone asked us to. 

But where does it come from and how come it doesn't look like a real heart? 

I know I have asked myself that question more than once so when I saw this video I had to check it out. 

The history of the heart symbol is long and interesting, and you are sure to learn something that you didn't know before. 

Let us know what you thought in the comments and have a Happy Valentines Day!
