“St. Valentine’s Day”
1. Красев Д.-Симакова А.
The 14th of February is St. Valentine’s Day. On this day people send each other greeting cards, sweets and flowers. Greeting cards are Valentine cards. They are very colourful. Traditional Valentine colours are red, pink, white and blue. Sometimes people make their own cards instead of buying them at the store. You can see human hearts, ribbons, children and cupids on them. Valentine cards are usually sensitive and funny.
2. Козинова Л.-Гурина А.
There are several legends about the history of St. Valentine’s Day. The ancient Romans celebrated one of their pagan holidays on the 14th of February. That’s why Cupid, the Roman god of love, is one of earliest popular symbols of the day.
43. Мальков Д.-Ерошкин И.
On this day we remember St. Valentine, a saint, who died on the 14th of February. He was Roman but he helped the Christians. He was put in prison and fell in love with the keeper’s daughter. He wrote loving messages to her and signed them “ your Valentine”.
4. Архипов О.-Рыбин Д.
It is a very old tradition. On that day all the girls in the village wrote their names on pieces of paper, which were then put in a jar. Each boy took out one piece and read the name of his sweetheart.
5. Виденин В.-Деревянко К.
Today in Britain boys and girls send anonymous cards to the person they like. Many valentines have romantic poems others are humorous. But almost all valentines ask “Be My Valentine”. This may mean be my friend or be my love or be my companion.
6. Агеев Р.-Еслюков С.
Valentine’s Day is not a legal holiday; schools and banks are open as usual. Shops sell valentines and decorations for Valentine’s Day parties and dances.
Schoolchildren decorate their classrooms with bright red paper hearts and celebrate the day in their classroom. They also make valentine cards for their friends and parents.
7. Еремина Н.-Ширшова Д.
St. Valentine’s Day is now a day for sweethearts. It’s the date for exchanging love messages, for sending poems and simple gifts, such as flowers and candies to parents, relatives, good friends.
LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD AND THE WOLF
As soon as wolf began to feel
That he would like a decent meal,
He went and knocked on Grandma’s door.
When Grandma opened it, she saw
The sharp white teeth, the horrid grin,
And Wolfie said, “May I come in?”
Poor Grandma was terrified,
“He’s going to eat me up!” she cried.
And she was absolutely right.
He ate her up in one big bite.
But Grandmamma was small and tough,
And Wolfie wailed, “That’s not enough!
I haven’t yet begun to feel
That I have had a decent meal!”
He ran around the kitchen yelping,
“I’ve got to have another helping!”
The added with a frightful leer,
“I am therefore going to wait right here
Till Little Miss Red Riding Hood
Comes home from walking in the wood.”
He quickly put on Grandma’s clothes,
(Of course he hadn’t eaten those.)
He dressed himself in coat and hat.
He puts on shoes and after that
He even brushed and curled his hair,
Then sat himself in Grandma’s chair.
In came the little girl in red.
She stopped. She stared. And then she said,
“What great big ears you have, Grandma.”
“All the better to hear you with,” the Wolf replied.
“What great big eyes you have, Grandma,”
Said Little Red Riding Hood.
“All the better to see you with,” the Wolf replied.
He sat there watching her and smiled.
He thought, I am going to eat this child.
Compared with her old Grandma
She’s going to taste like caviar.
Then Little Red Riding Hood said, “But Grandma,
What a lovely great furry coat you have on.”
“That’s wrong!” cried Wolf. “Have you forgot
To tell me what BIG TEETH I’ve got?
Ah, well, no matter what you say,
I am going to eat you anyway.”
The small girl smiles. One eyelid flickers.
She whips a pistol from her knickers.
She aims it on the creature’s head
And bang, bang, bang, she shoots him dead.
A few weeks later, in the wood,
I came across Miss Riding Hood.
But what a change! No cloak of red,
No silly hood upon her head.
She said, “Hello, and do please note
My lovely furry wolfskin coat.”

My Bonnie lies over the ocean
My Bonnie lies over the sea

Here’s special valentine
With lots of love for you,
And since you’re very special
Here are hugs and kisses, too!
Not only when it’s Valentine’s Day
But always all year through,
You’re thought about with words of love
And wished much gladness, too!
You’re just the nicest kind of boy (girl),
So very grown up, too
No wonder that this Valentine
Brings lots of love for you!
I hope that Valentine’s Day,
Will bring you lots of fun!
He thinks you’re extra-specially nice,
And so does everyone!
Happiness is never far behind
When thoughts of you come into mind!
Sending a wish with lots of heart
For a day that’s happy from the start!
Sending a basket of Valentine’s wishes
Filled with lots of love and kisses!
Just a little note to say,
“Have a happy, happy Valentine’s Day!”
A friend like you…
Is a dream come true!
Just wanted to say…
Have a bright, delightful
You’d make the nicest Valentine
That there could ever be!
And so I’m asking,
“Pretty, please, be Valentines with me?”
It’s such a treat to know
Someone so sweet!
It’s high time we were Valentines!
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet
And so are you.
You light up my life, Valentine!
Although I know that friendship reaches
Far across the miles,
I’d still be glad to see one of
Your warm and friendly smiles.
And though I know
The times we’re shared
Will last within the heart,
I just can’t keep from wishing that
We weren’t so far apart!
With tons of love on Valentine’s Day!
Here’s a valentine,
And this is what it’s for –
To say that every day
More and more and more!
With love and wish for your happiness
on Valentine’s Day and always!
You’re dad and mother
Who both are very dear,
That’s why you’re thought of lovingly
Each day throughout the year –
Guess anybody would be proud
And very grateful too,
To have a dad and mother
As fine as both of you!
If you will be my valentine,
My charming little dear,
The sun can never help but shine
Throughout the coming year.
If you will be my valentine,
You’ll see in all your walks
Fresh lemon drops on every twig,
And peanuts on the stalks
But if from you I never hear,
Nor even get a line,
I’ll ask some other nicer girl
To be my valentine.
What the world needs now…
Is more special people like you!
You stole my heart!
You’re at the top of my list
