いつもとは違う気持ちで迎えるイベントですよね :oops:



今年のバレンタインを楽しむ準備が始まったようです ;-)




What is Valentine’s Day? Why do people, especially couples look forward to it and celebrate it?

Valentine’s Day is an annual festival to celebrate romantic love, friendship and admiration. Many people around the world celebrate Valentine’s Day by showing appreciation for the people they love or adore. ;-)


It has become a tradition for teachers in Parrots Kun to put up decorations on Valentine’s Day.

Valentines2017-1Here are Teachers Lovely, Hanna, Akiko and Joy making some decorations for the upcoming special day. :-D



Every year on February 14th, people celebrate this day by sending messages of love and affection to partners, family and friends. Couples send Valentine’s Day cards and flowers and spend special time together to honor their love for each other. Some people take their loved ones for a romantic dinner at a restaurant while others may choose this day to propose or get married. Many people give greeting cards, chocolates, jewelry or flowers, particularly roses, to their partners or admirers on Valentine’s Day. :-)

Valentines2017-2Teachers look very serious, aren’t they? :-|




But of course, Valentine’s Day isn’t only for couples. It is also a time to appreciate friends in some social circles and cultures. So if you’re single, don’t you worry! You can still celebrate Valentine’s Day with your friends. ;-)


For example, Valentine’s Day in Finland refers to “Friend’s day”, which is more about remembering all friends rather than focusing solely on romance. Valentine’s Day in Guatemala is known as Day of Love and Friendship. It is similar to Valentine’s Day customs and traditions countries such as the United States but it is also a time for many to show their appreciation for their friends.

Unlike Korea, Japan, and other Asian countries, Philippines doesn’t have White Day. So Valentine’s Day is the day for both men and women to show their affection towards the people they love.







Hearts, the colors red and pink, and roses are the most common symbols of Valentine’s Day.






Images and statues of cupids, and cupids’ bows and arrows symbolize the feeling of romance and love on Valentine’s Day. Cupid is usually portrayed as a small winged figure with a bow and arrow. In mythology, he uses his arrow to strike the hearts of people. People who fall in love are sometimes said to be “struck by Cupid’s arrow”.


How about you? Have you been struck by cupid? :oops:




Oh, they are done! Good job, teachers! It’s wonderful! :-D Valentines2017-6




This year, it has become extra special because we are celebrating it with Teacher Lovely. What a lovely month, indeed!Valentines2017-7

Valentine’s Day is a special day to show our love and affection to the people we care for. But let us always remember that we should spread love everyday and not just on Valentine’s Day.Valentines2017-8
