Valentine ’s Day

Good morning everyone, it’s my honor to stand here to make a speech. And I want to introduce something about Valentine ’s Day to you. It is known to us all, Valentine ’s Day is on February 14th and it is a traditional festival in west, but now it is popular with all of us. As far as I know, most of you would like to celebrate the festival, but I want to tell you something in detail about it.

First of all, let me tell you the origin of the festival. In fact, there are many legends about the origination of the Valentine ’s Day. For the time is limited, I choose only one of them to tell you in brief. In Britain, birds tend to show their love to their lovers on 14th in February. As the result, people consider the day as the young life’s beginning and the day about love. Therefore, people try to imitate the behavior of the birds. That is the reason why the day is called Valentine ’s Day.

What ’s more, there is something which has to do with the V alentine ’s Day. That is rose.

Firstly, roses are good presents on V alentine ’s Day. And different colors of the roses stand for different meanings. Pink roses mean that the person you send the present to be you first love. Red roses mean that you love the one you send present to be the one you love now. Orange roses mean that you say” You are beautiful.” to your lover. And the white roses mean you respect your lover. Secondly, the number of the roses you

decide to send to your lover has different meaning. One rose means “Only you ”; two roses mean “There are only two of us in the world. ” There roses mean “I love you. ” 99 roses mean “Forever ”. 100 roses mean “100% love”. And 108 roses mean “Would you marry me?”

In addition, people from different counties may do different things on this day.

In America, people always like to post cards to their lovers. And even some young people may post a piece of message on the newspaper to show his or her love to the one he or she loves.

In England, people tend to celebrate the day with a big romantic dinner. And during the dinner they will send roses to their love.

In Australia, people often send purple shell to their lovers for that they believe it stand for loyal and steadfast.

Nowadays in China, there are more and more people celebrating the festival. Just like people in western counties, we also send roses or chocolates to our lovers. Maybe there will also be a date and a big meal.

Finally, if you are a single noble, try to catch your happiness as soon as possible. And if you already have a soul partner, wish you be together forever. Thank you.
