Valentine day cartoons

Everyone has their favourite Cartoon character whether it be Charlie Brown or Snoopy, Fred Bassett or Garfield, Bart Simpson or Bugs Bunny, not forgetting Tom and Jerry or Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Paddington Bear, Asterix, Tweety and Winnie the Pooh. Whatever your age or sex you are certain to have at least one character who you think is fantastic. Everyone loves cartoons and everyone reads cartoons even the rather severe looking businessman on the commuter train, the teacher you loved to hate at school, the local hooligan, your Grandad or kid sister.

During the last twenty to thirty years fluffy stuffed toys have really taken off as popular presents for Valentine’s Day. Those representing Cartoon characters even more so. Holding hearts or flowers or wearing t shirts with messages on of affection and love, big ones, small ones, all sizes and all kinds, as the big 14th approaches they seem to pop up in shops everywhere. Valentine’s Day is a growth business involving billions of dollars in sales (over 1 billion cards alone are purchased each year) and everyone seems to want to outdo themselves in terms of imaginative and amusing cards and presents.

If you’re not into fluffy toys then you can buy t shirts, sets of glasses, cartoon books, towels, tea towels, aprons, pens, agendas, posters, underwear, mugs and lots of other things all decorated with your favourite Cartoon character. The list of items available seems endless with something for everyone.

If you are tempted to buy something connected with a cartoon character for Valentine’s Day or get a card decorated with one then why not go the whole way and send an e-card or Valentine Day cartoon as well using the Internet. Look up your favourite cartoon character on the Net, go to their website and browse through. For most of the famous characters there is a great choice of wallpaper, e-cards, screensavers or daily cartoons to download or send. There are also games to play, puzzles to do online (or print), pictures to print, download or send and gifts you can buy online and send around the world. On many sites you can even look in their archives and find old classics. Annual celebrations such as Christmas, Birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Halloween and New Year always have their own special cartoons. Imagine their surprise when the one you love opens an email from you on the 14th February and finds a cartoon inside, it’s guaranteed to cheer them up and start their day with a smile on their face.

After all, isn’t that the idea of Valentine’s day? To show someone that you love and appreciate them and what better way than to make them smile with Valentine’s Day Cartoons. Nowadays sadly, like many other celebrations, Valentine’s Day has become maybe over commercialised, people are encouraged to spend more to show they care. Someone once said “It’s the little things that count” so send a Valentine’s Day Cartoon or e-card, it costs almost nothing yet gives a great deal of pleasure.

Preschool bible lessons on valentine day

Valentine’s Day is a aide-memoire that sometimes, it is absolutely OK, to have a relax in the bath tub with a glass of rich red wine, to eat candy and last but not the east to cherish love and friendship. But, according to our bible study as taught to us at our Sunday bible classes, Valentines’ day was named after the famous Saint Valentine, who was a Christian priest and was a scientist too. In Saint Valentines’ era, many Christians practiced in absolute secrecy, their religion. There are several spins of the same story that were told to us, hence the preschool bible education is a must. Here are some of the variants of the story told to us, when we were kids.

Children all over town adored St. Valentine and these kids would send him letters in which they would express how they felt for him – This directly relates to us sending valentine day messages- i.e., cards gifts tokens etc. Based on the above, Christians are taught / preached to, that the actual and true meaning of love, friendship, understanding, hatred etc. during pre-school bible lessons. And that is the reason why, it was initially the Christians who started celebrating valentine’s day the world over. And slowly and surely, it is also being celebrated by non-Christians also. It has now become an integral part of festivities all over the world as people have begun to (only in the recent few decades) realize the vitality and the importance of expressing one’s innermost feelings and love.

In a relationship, between two adult individuals, one must learn to love the other for what one is, and not what we want them to be according to our likes and dislikes, wants and priorities. One must see them for who they are and love them for what they choose t be, yet have they any serious vices aid them realize the dire consequences of their actions. Hence by teaching children while their minds are open to change one sees the advantage of pre-school bible lessons.

Another story also tells us that valentine was working effortlessly to cure and tend to a boy who had lost his sight and when he was suddenly, caught by the roman soldiers on the pretext that he was acting as a disguised priest. Thereafter valentine is sentenced to hang. Before his execution, he states to the boy in a letter that Jesus’ undying love for him, and the letter also contains a small sweet treat for the child.

Now what is important here, is the fact that as soon as the child eats the candy, his eyesight is magically mended and the child now is able open his eyes and the see the outside world and read the letter sent by Valentine, no sooner the child reads valentine’s note, the same instant the ” disguised priest” is executed. To reciprocate our love for each other, in the similar manner as Jesus dies for his love for us, we have to love, share, trust each other and support too pays a vital part in a relationship. Without a balanced and well formed mixture of these no relationship can be complete, which is also a part of the teaching sessions at pre-school bible lessons.

Children are also taught to make cards using angels quotes to give away to their school friends on valentine day as also every child is asked to read one quote each week, this is a great way to keep the spirit of love in their hearts, and in this way they can spread the message of love, once children learn this at pre-school bible lessons they are able to in the later and more formularize years realize the vitality of these concepts.

Valentine’s Day Gift For Her could be as simple as a teddy bear or a red rose, but until you add that special touch of you to it, it will be meaningless to her. A letter might be the best thing if she is the sentimental type. If you are mildly inclined to culinary arts, try making her brownies or a cake if you are daring enough a meal lit by candles. A romantic movie with her favourite caramel popcorn may seem so simple but might just make it the most lovely Valentine’s Day she’s ever had.

A cake with ringed hearts or a pendant with a heart would give her a sparkle in her eye, a book or an album with the timeline of your relationship or a picture showcase would leave her with a bountiful array of memories, which she can keep close to her heart always. A rose that is of the purest red there is or just a scroll of a poem you wrote with a small red ribbon holding it together is sure to make her ecstatic.
