Love is in the air ❤️
Ah, yes, the most romantic holiday known as Valentine’s Day, celebrated since the 5th century this holiday got the name by the person himself St. Valentine. And though it’s not widely popular in our town it seems that one particular school has taken a wide interest in it. But who is celebrating it? Where? Why? And how? Let’s find out!
St. Valentine was believed to be a priest during the 3rd century in Rome. One day the Roman emperor Claudius II decided to ban marriages, believing that single men made better soldiers. Outraged by this St. Valentine defied the emperor by preforming marriages for young couples in secret, and so Valentine’s Day was born.

And the most important part are the prizes, of course. There are a lot of heart-shaped candies for everyone, and sometimes even hand-made Valentine’s Day cards that students share with each other.
