Created by: María Eugenia Román. Many countries celebrate this date on February 14 every year, including the United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France, and Australia. Its origins date back to ancient Rome. Today, it symbolizes friendship and love. It is usually celebrated with gifts, flowers, and chocolates. Poems and cards are also exchanged.
Our school, as a multicultural space, encourages us to learn about traditions from around the world. Therefore, today our students wore red, white and pink clothing to create a festive atmosphere. Also, in English classes, students made Valentine’s Day cards and participated in various activities.
Human experiences are one of the most valuable expressions of culture, and exploring them creates a more open-minded perspective on the world around us. Thanks to all students and community members for participating!
