A Rose Is a Rose:  A Rose Is a Rose Beatles---- Can’t Buy Me Love:  Beatles---- Can’t Buy Me Love Love cannot be bought 1.Do you think gifts of devotion mean more to that special someone if they are more expensive? Slide3:  2. Have you ever or received flowers for a special occasion? How do you feel when you receive flowers?

Slide4:  love is clothed not so much in money Real story: *mother/ two gifts/ birthday itch scratcher (from daughter at home) & a parrot which can speak sth.(from son abroad) *2 yuan vs. 200 $ Remind her of love & affection Nothing but noise * it is the true love behind the gift and not the gift itself that matters most to gift giving. Slide5:  a bunch of beautiful flowers a cry of joy/ excited/ thrilled/ sweet, etc. holding them tightly in hands & enjoying their fragrance Very popular in the West/ not a tradition in China To the people ill in hospital/ host or hostess/ newly-weds Valentine’s Day and Its Influence:  Valentine’s Day and Its Influence Valentine was a priest (牧师)in Rome at the time Christianity was a new religion. The Emperor at that time, Claudius II, ordered the Roman soldiers not to marry or become engaged. Claudius believed that as married men, his soldiers would want to stay home with their families rather than fight his wars. Valentine defied(违抗) the Emperor’s decree(政令) and secretly married the young couples. He was eventually arrested, imprisoned, and put to death. Valentine was beheaded(斩首) on February 14th, the eve of the Roman holiday Lupercalia (牧神节). After his death, Valentine was named a saint. As Rome became more Christian, the priests moved the spring holiday from the 15th of February to the 14th—Valentine’s Day. Slide7:  When the calendar turns to February, we start to think of love. February has for centuries been designated(指定) the month for lovers, with the primary celebration being on February 14, St. Valentine‘s Day. We send cards, flowers, and candy and our children give out Valentine’s in school. Valentine‘s Day reminds us to tell our loved ones just how much we care about them. *Core Vocabulary:  *Core Vocabulary executive discount circulate counter index delivery soar formula spray via bloom bankrupt margin launch release unload rival executive: :  executive: 1. adj. having power to carry out decisions, laws, etc. 执行的,行政的 e.g. The executive branch carries out the laws which have been made by the politicians. 行政部门执行由政治家制定的法律。 His executive skills will be very useful to the company. 他的管理技能对公司将非常有用。 Slide10:  2. n.
