Let’s Find Out How U S A Celebrate the festival of Love: Valentine Day
Valentine day is a global festival. I think every country and every person around the globe celebrate this festival of love with their own way. In many places, Valentine’s Day is for couples, for romantic love only. Not in the USA! What’s different about Valentine’s Day in the USA. Let’s find out!
Valentine Day celebration in the school of U S A
Americans have celebrated Valentine’s Day since the 19th century. But the holiday became really popular in the 20th century, especially in schools. In the USA, Valentine’s Day is a big event at schools. In elementary school, kids exchange Valentine’s cards. Each kid will make a special box, and every student in the class will put a small Valentine’s card in the box of every other kid in the class. So if you live in the USA, and you have a child in elementary school, be sure your kid has enough cards for the whole class! Don’t worry; you can buy special class sets of Valentine’s cards just for the occasion! Students also offer a Valentine’s Day present to their teacher. Chocolate, maybe flowers, or a small gift.
Valentine’s Day in the USA: Family & Friends
Adults also exchange Valentine’s Day gifts and cards with family and friends. I always gave a Valentine’s Day Card to my parents. And today, we send each other e-cards for Valentine’s Day! The cards might have short, sweet messages like “You’re the best mom ever! Happy Valentine’s Day” or “You’re such a sweet daughter”, or things like that. They can be funny or serious. Chocolates are popular gifts for friends and family too. Especially a heart-shaped box of chocolates a heart-shaped box of chocolates. The classic ones are the Whitman’s Sampler and anything by the brand Russel Stover. But if you’re in the US, you’ll have more than enough choice, I’m sure.
Valentine’s Day in the USA: With your love one
Of course, in the US, you also celebrate with your significant other. This just means your boyfriend or girlfriend, or your fiancé, if you’re engaged, or your husband or wife. For couples, it’s pretty traditional. You might offer flowers, like a dozen red roses a dozen red roses. Or maybe jewelry. Jewelry could be earrings. Or a necklace. Or maybe even a ring, if the relationship is serious. It’s popular to go out to eat at a nice restaurant. Or you might say “I’m taking my boyfriend out to eat.” Or you can do like Barack and Michelle Obama, and write funny love poems. You have to watch this video of them and their Valentine’s Day poems.
