For Valentine's Day i taught some history/legends of how Valentine's came to be and how we celebrate it in America. Moldovans celebrate Valentine's Day too, like with all Moldovan holidays, there is Valentine's Day, similar to the American holiday, and then there is the religious observance day of celebrating St. Valentine himself. There is another holiday in Moldova, also in February, called Dragobete, and it's the day they celebrate romantic love.
After a brief history, all my students decorated pre-cut Valentine hearts i cut for them and i put them up on the wall. After they finished decorating, i gave them more construction paper to write a Valentine to someone...i received about 10. :o]
