For me, Valentine’s Day is another normal day – except the sale of chocolate, flowers, cards, and all things red increases for a day. I do not make too much fuss on this day (for me, Christmas is my favourite celebration). The children at school, however, love it. This year, I was pleasantly surprised when two members of staff offered us some homebaked treats at lunch.
The celebration in my class is very low-key: at the end of the day the children exchange cards and we share a snack (treats provided by the parents). I do ask the parents that if their child is going to exchange cards, that they write one for every person in the class (I send home a list so that no one is forgotten). Many children remember me while preparing their cards.
The cards make me smile – especially the homemade ones created with love and care.
How was your Valentine’s Day?
