What Will You Do with Your Boo?


Kameron House and Bella Dickey

Every year on February 14th, people all around the world celebrate “Valentine’s Day.” This day of romance is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century but has origins in the Roman holiday, Lupercalia.

In modern day, people celebrate this day by showing love and giving and receiving gifts. Some of the gifts people receive and give are cards, chocolates, flowers, jewelry, chocolate covered strawberries, stuffed animals, and many more items.

Some students and staff members were interviewed about what their expectations are for Valentine’s day. Here are some of the responses that we received:

Kyra Eddings, a freshman, says that she and her boo, Keaton, are going to hang out and go somewhere to eat.

Ava Eden, freshman, and her boo are going to go to the movies and going somewhere to eat.

Kelton Dickinson, senior, is going to sit on his couch and get fat off of the candy he bought for himself because no one else will buy him anything.

Mrs. Fletcher says, “My husband and I have been married for 27 years, so we’ve celebrated lots of Valentine’s Days together. We usually try to go out for dinner sometime around Feb. 14, but not on the actual date to avoid the crowds. We don’t buy gifts, but will give cards to each other and probably stay in and watch a movie at home together.”
