Be Your Own Valentine in 2022!
The first time I even heard about Valentine’s Day was in middle school in the mid-90s. Back then, Russia was slowly recovering from the collapse of the communist regime and for the first time ever its citizens had the opportunity to access satellite TV and foreign TV channels. My parents, who wanted to expose my sister and I to as much outside world as possible, paid for two of those channels: a music channel and a popular kids’ TV channel, which is where I got my first glimpse of the American pop culture. We started doing “cherub mail” at school and it was a huge success! So many people got love notes: friends sent each other bff valentines, favorite teachers got them too, and sometimes there’d be anonymous love confessions sprinkled in. Those were some good times!
