Valentine’s Day in America /
It's February, and soon we will celebrate the most romantic holiday of the year, Valentine's Day! In America, we have many different things that we do to celebrate the holiday. In Elementary school, many students will get little cards with popular characters on them that say phrases like, "Be my valentine" or "Happy Valentine's Day".
When students are in junior high and high school, they start giving each other stuffed animals, chocolates, and sometimes flowers! When I was in high school, people who received something from someone else had to go to the teachers’ office to get it. There were always lots of balloons, flowers, chocolates, and huge teddy bears in the office.
In college, you could pay some money to some of the singing groups and they would go and sing a love song to someone for Valentine's Day. It was really nice to hear their beautiful voices, even if the song they were singing wasn't for you. Many people in America buy chocolates, cards, and other things for their boyfriends or girlfriends, but gifts for friends and family members is not unusual.
