Диана: It’s here again, the day when boys and girls, sweethearts and lovers, husbands and wives, and will exchange greetings of affection and undying love.

Заур: St. Valentine’s Day, February 14, has been a customary day for choosing sweethearts and exchanging love.

Диана: What kind of holiday is St. Valentine’s Day? What is his origin?

Teacher: (Slide 3)

No one really knows the actual origin of Valentine's Day. Many historians consider this was held on February 14 to honor Faunus, the god of animal life, hunting, herding, the patron of husbandry, and the guardian of the secret lore of nature. After Christianity spread, some think this pagan festival eventually became Valentine's Day.

Евангелина: (Slides 4, 5)

Other experts connect Valentine's Day with two saints of the early Christian church. According to one story, St. Valentine's was a priest who would marry young couples against the orders of the Roman Emperor Claudius 11, who believed that single young men made better soldiers. This story goes back to about A.D. 200.

Карина (Slides 4,6)

There also was another St. Valentine who was a good friend to children. Because he would not worship the gods decreed by the Roman emperor, he was put in prison. While he was imprisoned, the children that he had befriended missed him and brought him loving notes. Many of the notes expressed the thought that "absence makes the heart grow fonder." He was supposedly executed on February 14 in A.D. 270. Some people think this is why we exchange friendly and caring messages on this day.

Teacher (Slides 4,7)

Many old-fashioned Valentine's Day customs involved ways single women could learn their future husbands might be. In England in the 1700s, women wrote men's names on scraps of paper, rolled each in a ball of clay, and dropped them into water. The first paper that surfaced supposedly had the name of the woman's true love.

Евангелина (Slides4,8).

Some people connect the celebrating of Valentine's Day with an old English belief that birds choose their mates on February. This, too, possible, since spring was less than a month away. The calendar used before 1582 was slightly different from the one we use now. Spring arrived on March 11 on the old calendar.

Карина (Slide 9).

The customs of sending valentine cards started in Europe in the 1700s. Commercial valentines were first made in the early 1800s. Kate Greenaway, a British artist, was one of the leading makers of valentines. Her valentines are known for her drawing of little children and the varied shades of blues and greens that she favored. Whatever the origin, Valentine's Day is celebrated in many parts of the world today and is a holiday for both young and old.


I never was struck before that hour

 With love so sudden and so sweet.

 Her face it bloomed like a sweet flower

And stole my heart away complete.

(John Clare)
