How Valentine’s day can be celebrated on campus

 

[/media-credit] Leadership places hearts with student names around the halls in hopes of spreading love and positivity, Feb. 10.

Valentine’s day is coming up this Sunday, Feb. 14. The global holiday is a day to show love towards special people in your life. Some ways students and staff can celebrate Valentine’s day is through kindness and love on campus.

The history of Valentine’s day is a mystery. According to History, Valentine’s day originated from St. Valentine estimated around the third century A.D. The Emperor Claudius II, outlawed marriage for young men, in hopes of stronger soldiers. Valentine was a martyr who continued to perform secret marriages for young couples. He was later sentenced to death by the Emperor.  The first ‘Valentine’ sent was by St.  Valentine addressed to himself when he had fallen in love with a young women.

Fresno Christian leadership, came up with a new idea for Valentine’s day, based off of Bullard High School. The student-led leadership class at Bullard,  typically creates a heart for every single student on campus every year, which is roughly around 2,500. They place those hearts all around the large campus and students spend the day in-between classes trying to find their heart, which they can take home.

Former Bullard student, Bella Johns, ’22, brought up the idea of student’s hearts to her leadership class and the motion passed. “This is just a fun way to make students feel known and loved”, Johns said. “This was one thing that I enjoyed about my old school and I thought it would be something students would enjoy.”

Valentine’s day doesn’t have to be giving someone a box of chocolates or flowers. It can be just a simple act to show your family, friends, classmates and staff that you care about them.

Here is a list of Random Acts of Kindness that you can do any day:

  • give someone a pencil
  • share some of your lunch snacks with someone who doesn’t have one
  • sit with someone who is lonely
  • say hi to someone in the hall
  • give compliments to anyone, anywhere
  • lift up those around you rather than bring them down
  • include someone who you don’t necessarily hang out with
  • buy your teacher a small gift to show your appreciation for them
  • hold the door for someone
  • buy the person behind you a coffee or treat

Just a reminder that you are a child of God and are made his image. We as a community, want to reflect the good of our God and how to be a good example of a christian in our everyday lives.
