Слайд 2: From History
There is a beautiful legend behind St. Valentine’s Day. Saint Valentine lived in Rome in the third century AD. At the time the Emperor or Rome was Claudius. He wasn’t very popular because he was trying to get more and more people for his army. The men didn’t want to go to the army and Claudius thought that it was because they didn’t want to leave their wives and children. “If they don’t get married, they will join the army,” he thought and passed a law which banned marriage.
Слайд 3: From History
Valentine was a Christian priest who didn’t like the new law. He secretly married people who were in love. One night the Emperor’s soldiers caught him and put him in prison. Valentine was going to die. Many young people felt sorry for Valentine and visited him in prison. One of them was the daughter of a prison guard. On the day of is execution Valentine wrote a note to her and singed it “Love from your Valentine”. This was on 14 February 269 AD.

Since then 14 February has been the Day of Love, when people send love letters and presents to each other. They don’t sing the cards with their names, but write “Guess Who” or “Your Valentine”.

Слайд 6: From History
At first this was a European tradition, but then it became popular in other countries. It came to Russia too, but a lot of people say, “If you love somebody, you should show it every day, not only one day a year”.
Symbols Cupid Cupid is a son of Venus, goddess of love. He could cause people to fall in love by piercing them with one of his magic arrows.
Red rose The rose was the flower of Venus, the Roman god of love. Red is a colour that stands for strong feelings. That is why the red rose is a flower of love.
Heart 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 it is also a symbol of Valentine’s Day.
