When Being A Kid Was FUN!
Valentines is on it's way........
Red and Pink hearts are everywhere!
I can remember as a child, Valentines Day was a very special day....It is still special, but it is a lot different from the way I remember it.
In our elementary classes, we would spend the entire week prior to Valentines Day, making valentines for our parents and friends. We used all sorts of things and lots of colored paper to help us create the cutest valentine cards. This was way back then, when kids were allowed to be creative at school.....
The favorite part for me was the Valentine Box Contest. This was huge! It was a project that we did on our own, without the help of parents or siblings. When the day finally arrived for us to bring our box to school, none of us could hardly wait. And then there was the voting! We had to vote on the best box.......
Another special thing was getting to see who all gave you a valentines. Back then, it wasn't a required thing for you to give one to everyone in the class. Sometimes you would find a special treat that someone placed in your box and then sometimes you would find a VERY SPECIAL SURPRISE! Kinda like a "Special Valentines"
"Will You Be My Valentine"
I like you. Do you like Me?
Yes ____ or No _____
It would depend upon what you said as to whether or not you had a new BOYFRIEND!
We would take our valentines home and look at them for days. This was a time when we as kids actually READ every single valentines that we got. (I'm really not sure that the kids read them these days)
Those were the SIMPLE good ol' days!
Do something special for the one you love...........
