1909 Antique Postcard of Cupid Mailing a Heart
1909 Antique Postcard of Cupid Mailing a Heart

It’s always fun to learn an unimportant bit of trivia, remember it, and then drag it out at opportune times.

This week’s bit of trivia: 

Cupid’s power was supposedly greater than his mother’s (Venus), and included dominion over the dead in Hades.

It’s hard to believe such an angelic looking creature, associated with love, had such a power over something so dark and feared.
