Today you will get to know why this holiday is celebrated all over the world, there will be a short quiz and we will play fun games. St. Valentine's Day is a holiday which is celebrated in Great Britain, the USA.
St. Valentine's Day has roots in several legends 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 couldnt agree with the emperor's decision. So he decided to marry young couples secretly. This story goes back to about 200 A.D.
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.
Valentines cards Now sending valentine cards on the 14 th 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 hopelessly in love with someone.
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 and affection 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.
