Gymnasia №1

























The leader: Today we celebrate one of the best holidays, which young and old people love. It is St. Valentine’s Day.

St. Valentine’s Day is a religious holiday, which is celebrated in Great Britain, in the USA and in many European countries. St. Valentine’s Day has roots in several legends. It is very interesting to know more about this day. Who wants to tell us something interesting?

Pupil №1: One of the earliest popular symbols of the day is Cupid, the Roman God of love, who is represented by the image of a young boy with bow and arrow.

The Romans used to celebrate the return of spring at the beginning of February with the feast of Lupercalia, in honour of the gods Pan and Juno. Boys used to draw lots for the names of unmarried girls. They also used to run through the streets whipping any pretty girl that they passed. Lupercalia was, by all accounts, a lively occasion.

Pupil №2: When the Romans settled in Britain, they brought these traditions with them. But when Christianity arrived, it was through best to put a stop to Lupercalia. The Christians always cleverly replaced Pegan festivals with Christian ones, and February 14th was named as the saint’s day of Valentine. Valentine was a Christian priest.

Three hundred years after the death of Jesus Christ, the Roman emperors still demanded that everyone believe in the Roman gods.

Valentine, a Christian priest had been thrown in prison for his teachings. On February 14th, Valentine was beheaded. The night before he was executed, he wrote the jailer’s daughter a farewell letter, signing it «From Your Valentine».

Pupil №3: Another legend tells us that Valentine, well loved by all, wrote notes from his jail cell to children and friends who missed him.

Another Valentine was an Italian bishop who lived at about the same time. He was imprisoned because he secretly married couples, contrary to the laws of the Roman emperor. Some legends say he was burned at the stake.

Pupil №4: In medieval England the 14th of February was believed as the day when birds chose their mates. It became a tradition for hopeful lovers to send each other gifts. Partly the idea was that young ladies could send cards to young gentlemen hinting that a proposal of marriage might not be unsuccessful. This, of course, was at a time when no woman would ever dare propose to a man.

But of course, men also sent Valentine cards, and the fact that they were anonymous made rejection more bearable.

Pupil №5: However in the early nineteenth century things took a darker term. There was a fashion for comic Valentine cards, and people took advantage of their anonymity to poke fun at and even insult one another. Men sent cards to women insulting them for having large noses, loud voices or simply being single.

Only imagine that you’ve had such Valentine card: «Please don’t be my Valentine – you look just like a clown. Your feet are pointing backwards, and your head’s on upside down».

Women sent cards to men accusing them of lying, playing around with girls or playing dishonestly with women’s emotions.


The song «I’m sending back your roses»

I’m sending back your roses

Sending them back to die.

What good for me are roses

Now when you told me a lie.

I’m sending back your roses

Now that we’ve had to part

Even a field of roses

Can’t mend my broken heart.


Things got nastier and nastier until the 1850s, when there was a swing in society

towards politer ways.

But in Britain, at least, the Valentine card died out at the beginning of the twentieth

century. Victorian sentimentality was out of fashion. However, Valentine’s Day had

always been big in America, and in the 1920s it was reimported into Britain. Over

the years it has become a multi-million pound industry, and is now celebrated all

over the world.

Pupil №6: St. Valentine’s Day is now a day for sweethearts. It is the day that you show your

friend or loved one that you care. You can send candy to someone you think is

special. Or you can send roses, the flowers of love. Most people send

«Valentines». They can be sentimental, romantic and heartfelt. They can be funny

and friendly. If the sender is shy, valentines can be anonymous. You can write a

short rhyme inside the valentine:

Roses are red,

Violets are blue,

Sugar is sweet

And so are you!

You can also show your «sweetheart» that you care by singing a romantic song!

(We can hear the song: «Love story»).

Americans of all ages love to send and receive valentines. Schoolchildren make

valentines for their classmates and put them into a large decorated box, similar to a

mailbox.

The leader: Now, I invite you to take part (or participate) in our competitions between our best

couples. But before the beginning of our party I suggest you to choose our best couples.

Write down the first and the last name of a girl and a boy whom you decided to choose for the competitions and put your notices into the box. Then our respectable judges will think a little and give us the result.

(during the interval the play with spectators)

The leader: I invite you to play with me. Only three pupils come up to me. I want to give you some small hearts and I want you to make funny faces. It may be a cat or a dog; a boy or a girl, or Father the Frost or a maiden…

Who will be the first, will be the winner.

( For the information)

He (she) is the winner – take this counter (жетон). Who’ll take the greatest number of counters will be the winner. At the end of our competitions we’ll give him (her) a price.


The results of our judges.

Our couples are:…

Come up to me. Let’s greet them.


First competition: The task is: to recite the best poem about love or friendship.

E.G: I want to be near you all the time,

And never say good-bye.

And read these words from me.

It’s not a dream. My love is true.

Look in my heart and see.

Our final words:

We’ve have talked quite a lot about St. Valentine’s Day today. It’s very pleasant to see that all of you like it and know something about it. Today you’ve learnt more about this holiday. I think that all of you enjoyed the party?

Now let’s sing our song all together.

( American Folk Song)


You ought to see my Cindy,

She lives way down south,

She’s so sweet the honeybees

Swarm around her mouth.


The first I seen my Cindy

She was standing in the door,

Her shoes and stockings in her hand,

Her feet all over the floor.

Chorus:

Get along home, Cindy, Cindy,

Get along home, Cindy, Cindy,

Get along home, Cindy, Cindy.

I’ll marry you some day.
