With the day of love coming up again, it is fitting to revive and appreciate some old Afrikaans Valentine’s cards from a century ago. Little is known, however, about these cards that were donated years ago to the Taalmuseum by a Ms Valerie Hough of George. But unknown does not mean unloved! We will publish one every week and hope it will inspire you to conjure up original, creative love cards in Afrikaans for 2019. There is even a big, enchanting prize for one lucky couple up for grabs, so keep an eye on our Facebook page for details. Feel free to post your card on Instagram and tag @taalmonument, and on Facebook and share with Afrikaanse Taalmonument.
Also remember our Stargazing Picnic, Full Moon Picnic and ‘Minnesang en Maanskyn’ concert with Leah and Karin Kortje taking place in Valentine’s month.
