People send greeting cards called Valentines to their sweethearts, their friends, and members of their families. Verses on many Valentines con- tain tender thoughts. Other Valentines may include humor- ous picture and sayings. But almost allsay, "Be My Valentine". Romans celebrated their feast of Tuperculia as a lover's festival for young people. Young men and women chose paytners for the festival by drawing names by chance from a box. Then the partners exchanged gifts as a sign of affection. They usually continued to enjoy one another's company long after the festival. Many such courtship .~pds in marriage. Tuperculia which took place on February 15tb later changed to the 14th was a festival to honor Juno, the Romans goddess of women and marriage and Pan, the god of Nature. Valentine's Day is not a business or bank holiday. Schools and business remain open as usual. But, during the weeks before the festival, mer- chants sell Valentines and decoration for Valentine's Day parties and dances. School children decorate their class- rooms with bright red paper hearts. On Valentines Day, women and girls receive gifts, candy, or flowers from their favorite "Valentines." Giving the Teacher a Valentine is an exciting moment for any young boy, especially if he hopes that it will make up for his mischief-making and uncompleted lessons in the past weeks. { ~ /J ,= >: ;Ci~ John Matthews / Mr. and Mrs. L.C.
