Valentine’s Day – the perfect day for …
To celebrate all things connected with love and romance we are bringing you one British bloger’s view on Valentine’s Day and lots of useful English language resources on the theme.
Here British cultural blogger JohnR shares his view on Valentine’s Day:
Valentine’s Day is the day dedicated to the person that we love. We buy them presents and a card to tell them that we love them. It is when we go for walks along the beach, eat a romantic dinner at a restaurant and a lot of people propose (a bit cheesy!).
Valentine’s Day is also where we are brave and tell that person that we fancy the truth. If we have a crush on someone then Valentine’s Day is the perfect chance to tell that person how we feel and whether they feel the same. We have nothing to lose. Of course, for people like me who are a bit forgetful the 13th February is a day of stress. We try to find any possible romantic card from a shop that might relate to our significant other or try to find a restaurant that isn’t fully booked.
If we have a crush on someone then Valentine’s Day is the perfect chance to tell that person how we feel and whether they feel the same. We have nothing to lose.
This Valentine’s Day, tell that special person that you love them. Let them know how you feel. You have nothing to lose but everything to gain. I know that my girlfriend reads these articles I write (she is a native Slovak and English is her third language) so I want to thank her for always being there for me. I hope she will be ‚My Funny Valentine’ this year and for many more to come.
