情人节小知识:

Valentine’s Day is always celebrated on February 14.

Valentine’s Day is also known as Saint Valentine’s Day. The holiday is named after Saint Valentine, a Christian clergymen who helped young lovers. But Valentine’s Day is not only for lovers, it’s a day to celebrate all kinds of love: friendship, family love, and appreciation.

In fact, the festival to celebrate love has its history earlier than Saint Valentine. The festival has origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia.   The ancient Romans celebrated a holiday for love more than two thousand years ago.

Nowadays,  people celebrate the festival by giving cards, flower, chocolates, or other presents to their loved ones. The most common symbol of Valentine’s Day is the ‘heart’.  Other symbols coupled with this day are pairs of birds and cute teddy bears.

每年的214日是情人节。

情人节又称圣瓦伦丁节。这个节日是以Saint Valentine(圣瓦伦丁)命名的,他是一个基督教牧师,曾帮助很多年轻的情侣。但不是只有情侣才能庆祝情人节,这是可以表达各种爱的节日,包括友情,亲情,感恩或欣赏他人的情感。

事实上,情人节的起源远早于圣瓦伦丁。它兴起于罗马牧神节。古罗马人早在2000多年前就已经开始庆祝这个节日了。

如今,人们通常会在情人节送贺卡,鲜花,巧克力,或其他礼物给自己心爱的人。情人节最常见的象征是“爱心”,其他象征情人节的标志还有成双成对的鸟儿,可爱的泰迪熊等等。
