Festivals: St. Valentine's Day (14th February)

Type: Reference material

February 14th is a day when close friends or loved ones send each other gifts to express their friendship or love. St Valentine's Day is believed to come from both Christian and Ancient Roman traditions - the Catholic church recognizes three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus. One legend says that a man named Valentine fell in love with a young girl who visited him when he was in prison. Before his death, it is thought that he wrote her a letter, which he signed "from your Valentine", an expression still in use today.

  • Of course, it might be that the relevant font is missing from my system. But I'd be surprised. The PDF file refers to Webdings, but I have that.

  • There is an error in the St Valentine's board game. Some of the squares should be marked by a daisy (as in the children's game "He loves me, he loves not"), but instead they show a lowercase Greek letter 'phi'. This is almost certainly a font substitution error. You need to find out what font the lesson author used and install it on the system that you use to publish the final PDFs.

    This page is reference material only, however we have now added some related resources to Valentine's Day below the article. We also have plenty of general lesson plans and worksheets about love on the site, so try typing the word 'love' into our search engine.
