Valentinov kviz in verzi (v angleščini)



Valentinovo je pred vrati! Verjetno ste že kdaj slišali za izvor praznika, ki se imenuje po sv. Valentinu, svetniku iz 3. stoletja. Zaradi krščanske vere je bil zaprt in obsojen na smrt, saj so Rimljani takrat kristjane še obravnavali kot krivoverce. Ena od legend pravi, da je bil njegov glavni prestopek poročanje mladih parov na skrivaj, v nasprotju s cesarjevo odredbo. V zaporu ga je obiskovala slepa ječarjeva hči, v katero se je zaljubil, ji pisal pesmi in ji s svojimi prošnjami vrnil vid. Od tod izvira navada pošiljanja verzov in pisem za valentinovo.

For partners, lovers:

· I have superb taste. I picked a good one. You have superb taste because you got me what I wanted, you.


· I don't just love you. I love that I get to have you as my Valentine.


· Cupid shot well for me! He hit you and me with perfect aim.


· As busy as we get, we need to be reminded that we are still sweethearts. Valentine's Day is a good day for me to stop and realise how wonderful you make me feel.


· I like all the ways that we hang out together, even when were mad. And I like the things that are not appropriate for a greeting card.


· Whether Valentine's Day or not, I can't think of anyone I would rather spend a day with.


· Be mine, forever.
