Сompere 1. Hello dear boys and girls! Teachers and friends!
Сompere 2. We are so glad to see you here today
Сompere 3. We are going to celebrate St. Valentine’s Day. No one really knows the origin of it. There are many legends about it.
Сompere 1. According to one this day is connected with an ancient Roman Festival called Lupercalia. This was on February, 15 to honor the patron of husbandry
Сompere 2. The next story tells us that St. Valentine was a priest who married young couples secretly when the Roman Emperor Claudius 2 forbade marriages. He believed that single men were better soldiers.
Сompere 3.Another story tells us about St. Valentine who was a good friend to children. He was against the Roman Gods and that is why he was put in prison. When he was imprisoned the children brought him loving letters. It was on February, 14. Some people think that is why we give friendly and loving messages to each other on this day.
Сompere 2. We prepared many presents to you today. The first one is a dance by
Сompere 3. There are many symbols of this holiday. Listen to the stories about some of them.
Heart. Emotions are feelings such as love, happiness, anger, or fear. A long time ago people believed that all the emotions were found in the heart. In later years they thought only the emotion of love was connected with the heart. The heart is still a symbol of love and because of this; it is also a symbol of Valentine’s Day.
Red Rose. The rose was the favorite flower of Venus, the Roman goddess of love. Red is a color that stands for strong feelings. That is why the red rose is a flower of love.
Ribbons. Ribbons go back to the days when ladies gave ribbons to their favorite knights when they went to war.
Lace. Lace comes from a Latin word; it means “to catch”. Lace was supposed to catch the heart of a loved one. Lace is a pretty fabric made by weaving together fine threads. Hundreds of years ago women carried lace handkerchiefs. A man nearby might pick it up and return it to her. Sometimes a woman might see a man she wanted to meet. She might drop her lace handkerchief on purpose to encourage romance. Soon people thought of romance when they thought of lace. They began using paper lace to decorate chocolate boxes and Valentine cards.
Gloves. Years ago when a man proposed marriage to a woman he asked “for her hand”. The hand became the symbol of marriage and love. Soon gloves also became a symbol of love.
Rings. In some countries men and women exchange rings when they became engaged or marry. Two or three hundred years ago Valentine’s Day was a popular day for giving an engagement ring. The ring usually had stone or jewel set in it. Diamonds are common in today engagement rings.
Love knot. A love knot is a series of winding and interlacing loops with no beginning and no end. It is a symbol of endless love. People made love knots from ribbon or drew them on paper. Often, a message was written on the love knot. The message had no beginning or end. It could be repeated endlessly.
Love birds and Doves. Lovebirds are colorful parrots found in Africa. Most have red bills.They are called love birds because they sit closely together in pairs. Doves were thought to be favorite birds of Venus. They remain with the same mates all their lives. The males and females both care for their babies. As these birds are symbols of loyalty and love they are also symbols of Valentine’s Day.
Cupid. Son of Venus, goddess of love. He could cause people to fall in love by piercing them with one of his magic arrows.
Сompere 1.One of the traditions of this day is to write each other short messages about love on the cards.
Сompere 2. Our young friends from the 5-7 forms would like to present you some congradulations.

Сompere 3. What do you think about love? Why do we love somebody?
Сompere 1 Love – is the greatest mystery of all time. Love is one of the best feeling on earth. Love makes our life better .Love is not a reson to cry love is just a reason to fly
Сompere 2 I am sure love doesn’t need reasons, its just our feeling
Why I Love You
You give to me hope And help me to cope
When life pulls me down You bring me around
You teach me to care And help me to share
You make me honest With kindness the best
From you I learned love With grace from above
It's for you I live And I want to give
You are the reason That fills each season
When I hear love I think of you You are my world and best friend too
I love you because you are so kind, thoughtful and caring
I love you because you are so pleasant, lovely and sharing
Сompere 1 Poetry is a language of love. Our students learnt many poems about love from English and American classical literatures and would like to tell us some of them.
(виступи учнів 8 класів)
Pupil 1. I wrote your name in the sky,
but the wind blew it away.
I wrote your name in the sand,
but the waves washed it away.
I wrote your name in my heart,
and forever it will stay. (Jessica Blade)
Pupil 2. The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.
But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips. by John Boyle O'Reilly
Pupil 3. I love the way you look at me,
Your eyes so bright and blue.
I love the way you kiss me,
Your lips so soft and smooth.
I love the way you make me so happy,
And the ways you show you care.
I love the way you say, "I Love You,"
And the way you're always there.
I love the way you touch me,
Always sending chills down my spine.
I love that you are with me,
And glad that you are mine. (Crystal Jansen)
Pupil 4. My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress when she walks treads on the ground.
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare. by William Shakespeare
