Teacher (T): Love! Friendship! Happiness! Affection! Romance! Today we can say these words because it
is an unusual and special day Saint Valentine’s Day. This happy holiday celebrates friendship, love and
romance. Valentine’s day is a good time to think of who are important to us Moms and Dads,
grandparents, sisters and brothers, friends and classmates, teachers. It’s a nice time to tell them how
much you love them and how you feel.
Pupil (P₁): To each and every friend of mine
I’ll send a lovely valentine.
Mom, Dad, Sis and Brother, too.
Will receive a heart that says,
‘I love you’.
T: Ladies and gentleman! Good evening! It’s lovely to meet you here, at the Valentine’s party! Today you
will get to know why this holiday is celebrated all over the world, there will be a short quiz and we play
fun games.
P: St. Valentine’s Day is a holiday which is celebrated in Great Britain, the USA, and in many European
countries. St. Valentine’s Day has roots in several legends. This is the legend of how St. Valentine’s Day
began. According to one story, St. Valentine was a kindly priest named Valentine.
P: When the Roman Emperor Claudius II needed soldiers, he made a law against marrying. Claudius II
thought that marriage made men want to stay at home instead of fighting wars. At that time the priest
named Valentine couldn’t agree with the emperor’s decision. So he decided to marry young couples
secretly. This story goes bake to about 200 A.D/
P: Another legend tells us that Valentine was a Christian priest in the Roman empire three hundred
years after the death of Jesus Christ. He had been thrown in prison for his teaching. On February 14,
Valentine was beheaded, not only because he performed a miracle he cured the jailer’s daughter of
her blindness the night before he was executed. But he had written a letter to the girl, signing it ‘From
your Valentine’.
P: Written valentines began around 1400. The oldest one we know of dates from 1415. A Frenchman,
Charles, Duke of Orleans, was captured by the English in a battle. He was put in prison in the Tower of
London. There he wrote valentine poems. Many of them were saved and can be seen today in the
British Museum.
P: The custom of sending valentine cards in Europe started in the 1700s. For a long time valentines
were made by hand. Commercial valentine cards were first made in the early 1800s. Kate Greenaway, a
British artist, was one of the leading creators of valentines. Her valentines are known for her drawings
of little children and the varied shades of blues and greens that she favored.
: Now sending valentine cards on 14
of February has become the most popular way of expressing
love, affection and friendship. The ornaments that decorate valentines are symbols of love and
friendship. In the language of symbols, a red or pink heart, pierced with an arrow denotes eternal love.
It’s the most popular symbol of the holiday of love and romance.
: Lace symbolizes a net for catching a lover’s heart. So if you get a valentine with a piece of lace, it
means that a person who has sent it is passionately in love with you. Lace means “You have caught my
heart in a net”.
: Cupid, the Roman god of love, is a symbol of passionate, tender, or playful love. His arrows are
invisible and his targets are our hearts. When his arrow hits your heart, you’ll fall in love with someone.
: One symbol which has slipped into the background is the true love knot. With no beginning and no
end, the love knot consists of graceful loops, sometimes in the form of hearts. It’s not easy to invent a
true love knot of your own.
: A ribbon means that a person is tied up. It says “You are tied up” or “You’re my girl”. A red rose is
the most romantic symbol of love.
: Nowadays people usually send greeting cards with words of love to their sweethearts, friends and
members of their families. They say “Be My Valentine”. They give roses, chocolates and other presents
to them. Boys and girls have valentine parties at school or at home.
: Children decorate their classrooms with bright red paper hearts and celebrate the day with songs,
games, poems and a valentine box. They have tea with cakes, candies and cookies made in heart shapes
and decorated in pink or red.
