Compere 1: Good afternoon, dear boys and girls! We are glad to see you here  at our party. Our party is devoted to St. Valentine's Day. Let us tell you a  little bit about this holiday.

Presenter: Every year on the  14t h of February boys and girls,  husbands and wives, friends and  neighbours celebrate St. Valentine's Day. .  There are several different legends. One of the earliest popular symbols of the day is Cupid, the Roman God of Love. The first Valentine was a bishop, Christian martyr; who, before he was put to death by the Romans, sent a note of friendship to his jailer's blind daughter on the 14, h of February. Another legend has it that this man, the same Valentine loved by all, wrote notes from his jail cell to children and friends, who missed him.

St. Valentine's Day is now a day for sweethearts. It is the holiday when you show your friends or loved ones that you care. You can send candies or flowers as a present; most people send "valentines", greeting cards. Valentines can be sentimental, romantic, funny and friendly. People of all ages love to send and receive valentines. At school children make valentines for their classmates and put them in a large decorated box. And on the 14, h of February the teacher opens the box and gives the valentines to the pupils. After the pupils read their valentines, they have a small party. I think that this holiday is very important. And on this day all sweethearts must be together.

Compere 2: And now let's invite our participants. Can you introduce yourselves?

(Theparticipants introduce themselves. They say several sentences about their hobbies, likes and dislikes.)

And we suggest that you make couples. Choose a half of a heart and in such a way you will find your partner. Children, greet our couples with applause. Dear participants, we have prepared several contests for you. The winner will be the couple who will get the most hearts.

Compere 1: The first task is to explain your partner the sentence, which is written on a sheet of paper. You must not use words, only gestures. If your partner understands you and can say the sentence, your couple will get a heart.

Give me flowers.

Invite me to the cafe.

Write me a love message.

Sentences for boys.

Let's go to the cinema.

a Scottish folk song

My Bonnie lies over the ocean,

My Bonnie lies over the sea,

My Bonnie lies over the ocean,

Oh bring back my Bonnie to me.


Bring back, bring back,

Bring back my Bonnie to me, to me.

Bring back, bring back,

Bring back my Bonnie to me.

Last night as I lay on my pillow,

Last night as I lay on my bed,

Last night as I lay on my pillow

I dreamed that my Bonnie was dead.


Oh blow ye the winds o'er the ocean,

Oh blow ye the winds o'er the sea,

Oh blow ye the winds o'er the ocean,

And bring back my Bonnie to me.


The winds have blown over the ocean,

The winds have blown over the sea,

The winds have blown over the ocean,

And brought back my Bonnie to me.
