The origin of the holiday (слайд 3)
No one really knows the actual origin of Valentine’s Day. Some historians connect it with the ancient Roman festival. ( слайд 4) Others connect it with two saints of the early Christian church. Both saints were good friends to people, especially young ones, and both were executed by the Romans. ( слайд 5)
February 14 was also a Roman holiday. ( слайд 6) On this day young men randomly choose the name of the girl to escort to the festival. The custom of choosing a sweetheart on this day became very popular in the medieval Europe. Later this custom spread to American colonies.
Some people link the celebration of Valentine’s Day with the old English belief that birds choose their mates on this day. (слайд 7)

Голос за сценою ( слайд 11)
Your name is a bird on my palm.
Your name is an ice on my tongue.
Your name is a stone in a swamp.
It is a bullet, and a cramp.
Your name is an invisible moment of my lips,
A kiss in the eyes,
My breath in your hold.

There is a legend.
Once upon a time there lived couples. They were strong and wise. They could do everything and they were happy. But suddenly there was a terrible storm and it divided couples into two halves – a man and a woman and mixed them on the Earth. Since that time people have become weak. Every half tries to find the lost one. Those who find each other, fall in love.

-Today we can’t but speak about friendship.
- Friendship is really a very important feeling in our life. Without friends what can we do? ( Ведучі по черзі читають рядки вірша)
When you are sad I will dry your tears,
When you are scared I will ease your fears,
When you are worried I will give you hope
If you want to give up, I’ll help you to cope.
Why you may ask?
Because you are my friend.
Ведучий (слайд 15)
But love is the best feeling in the world. Love makes the world go round. It is the greatest mystery of all times. Love helps to live. Love is the best thing that can ever happen to a man. Anyone who has never really loved has never really lived.
Symbols (слайд 16)
One of the most famous valentine symbols is Cupid with his bow and arrow. Cupid was the son of a beautiful goddess, Venus. (слайд 17)
Once upon a time there were two little Cupids. All day long they frisked in the soft clouds and on the green flowering lawns of Paradise. They were very happy. But once their arrow hit a man’s heart. And today they have broken so many hearts.

I’m in love with you.
Let me hear your whisper
That you love me too.
*I know the love of mine will never die
