Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is celebrated on February 14th every year. White Day is only celebrated in Japan and South Korea. Valentine’s Day is a day to show affection. People send cards, called valentines, to their friends, family, and loved ones. Verses on valentines often rhyme, express love, and almost all ask, "Be My Valentine."

Valentine's Day comes from the Christian holy days that celebrate two Christian saints named Valentine. The holiday started with an ancient Roman festival called Lupercalia, which took place every February 15. The festival honored Juno, the Roman goddess of women and marriage - and Pan, the god of nature.

Valentine's day is fun day to celebrate with friends and loved ones. In American elementary schools, students decorate their classrooms with red and pink paper hearts. They exchange gifts, candy, flowers or ‘valentines.’ Adults often go to a nice restaurant for dinner on Valentine’s day and often give presents, such as jewelry, chocolate or flowers, to their significant others.
