Ahhh, Valentine's Day. The holiday of love and
romance. But not for everyone.
Some despise the holiday, as it rubs salt in
the wounds of loneliness or singlehood. While others enjoy the sweet gestures of chocolates and roses, or
massages and date nights, there are those who scoff at the commercialized
holiday, which seems to be a shallow money-making scam.
There are so many ways to feel about
Valentine's Day, I needed help simplifying things. So I looked to the group of people that always
know how to get right to the heart of the matter: kids. I asked them, "What is Valentine's Day?" Here's what they had to say:
"It's a day when you give out Valentine's Day cards. I think that's it." — Dafna, 5
"I don't know. But you
get candy!!" — Anika, 8
"I think you're supposed to find someone cute and hold their
hand." — Oscar, 6
"Valentine's Day is when you give cards with heart stickers
all over them." — Dev, 10
"It's a holiday about hearts and love and stuff." — Max, 7
"So there was this man, I forget his first name, but his
last name was Valentine, and he was a very kind man. And actually, I think his first name was
"Kind," and he made up Valentine's Day. It's for people to get together and have fun." — Ramona, 8
"It's kind of like Christmas, except not as good." — Sophie,
"It's like where it's basically you give people cards, and
it's "be nice to everybody" day. Like if
you see a stranger on the street, you can say, 'Hi.'" — Aki, 7
In middle school, you pass out cards and then go home and throw them all out. At least I do. I emailed my classmates a PicCollage I made.
"Ehh ... I dunno, the holiday of love, I guess?" — Derek,
"It's has to do with St. Valentine's or something, and it's a
celebration of love. And stuffed bears
and chocolates. It's all about the giant stuffed bears!" — Fiona, 13
"It's also known as St. Chocolat Day." — Gabriela, 12
"Valentine's is that day when my parents make me and my
brother stay home with a babysitter so they can go and watch a movie or
something." — Jack, 10
"Valentine's Day is a holiday made by greeting card
companies to make money." — Iris, 13
"In middle school, you pass out cards and then go home and
throw them all out. At least I do. I emailed my classmates a PicCollage I made." — Mike, 11
"It's a holiday where you tell the person that you love
them. It's the loving holiday!" — Olivia,
