American Love

This Valentine’s Day, I realized how differently Americans celebrate this holiday than…well the entire world. In America, from an early age I was taught that February 14th was about chocolates and making valentines.  Since I was six, the week before, I would be write out my valentines to my classmates, friends and family. And 20 years later, I have kept this tradition. Each year when I hand out my valentines, not a year goes by without someone telling me this was their first valentine that they’ve ever received [mind blown]. I’m happy to bring a smile to someone’s face! In France, when I try making valentines with my students, they tell me that they don’t have a boy/girlfriend and are hesitant to believe that February 14 isn’t always about lovers, but for friends and family was well….
