T: 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 will play fun games.

S3: 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. (1 слайд)

In the III century A.D. the Roman Emperor Claudius edited a decree forbidding marriages. (2

He thought that marriages held soldiers at home and didn’t give them the opportunity to be good
warriors. (3 слайд)

But the young priest called Valentine wreathed the pairs secretly. (4 слайд)

When Claudius found out that the priest didn’t obey his decree, he put Valentine into prison and
sentenced him to death. (5-6 слайд)

In prison Valentine wrote messages to the jailer’s daughter. Young people fell in love with each
other in spite of grim conditions and close death. (7 слайд)

Before the execution in the 14th of February, 270 he sent his girl a short farewell note with the
words “from Valentine” that afterwards began to mean eternal attachment, faith and love. (8 слайд)

Later, as a christian martyr, priest Valentine was canonized by the catholic church. And already in
496 the pope Gelasius declared the 14 of February Valentine's Day. (9 слайд)

There are a lot of symbols of St. Valentine’s Day. In the language of symbols, a red heart, pierced
with an arrow denotes eternal love.

Cupid, the Roman god of love, is a symbol of passionate, tender, or playful love. When his arrow
hits your heart, you’ll fall hopelessly in love with someone. (10-11 слайд)

A red rose is the most romantic symbol of love. (12 слайд)

Nowadays people usually send greeting cards with words of love and affection to their sweethearts
and members of their family. They give roses, chocolates and other presents to them. (13-14 слайд)
S4: Some people believe that St. Valentine was the saint patron of birds. The legend tells that birds
choose their mates on the 14th of February and began to build their nests on this day. More than that
people used to belive that a girl could tell what kind of man her future husband was going to be by
the kind of bird she first saw on St. Valentine’s Day. For example if a girl see a blackbird her
husband will be a priest. (2 слайд)

Robin – sailor. (3 слайд)

Goldfinch – a rich man. (4 слайд)

Sparrow – a poor man. (5 слайд)

Bluebird – a happy man. (6 cлайд)

But if a girl saw a woodpecker, it meant she would never marry. (7 слайд)
