Spreading the love on Valentine's Day
Today is not just any day, it's Valentine's Day. It's a day dedicated to love. Most everyone knows that...even kids.
News 5's Lauren Conley visited Hawthorne Elementary in Hastings today. She asked kids what Valentine's Day means to them.
There were some very insightful answers. I was able to join their Valentine's Day parties. When kids look past the candy and the games they see the heart of the matter.
"It's about love and kindness and sharing," said first grader Ella Lieske.
"Where like two people, if they're dating or something, they get together and they have a meal, or something," fourth grader Kelsey Darc said.
Kids may know Valentine's Day is all about love, but they don't always know what love means.
Though, some have a clear idea in their minds.
"Well, it's mostly like really romantic and really sweet when they fall in love because they think it's, like, true love together," said first grader Rebekah Evans.
"Treating someone good," said fourth grader Landon Moretti.
One thing they all can agree on is who they love. To this young crowd it's family.
"Because my family is really caring for me," Evans said.
Family. That's a love that trumps them all.
The Hastings High Madrigal and Chamber Ensemble traveled the town serenading Valentine's Thursday.
This one was extra special.
"I had no idea. I just thought we were having lunch (laughs)... which I thought was a good present!" said Lisa Carson.
But, this lunch was interrupted by a love song from her own daughter's choir.
"They tell us all the time that we should be very happy that our parents are so in love still, and I think that I am very lucky that I have that."
For people of all ages... love is in the air.
