When I was in junior high, my school held an annual Valentine’s Day fundraiser. You could buy $1.00 carnations to give to people around you. There were three colors that had taken on a meaning of their own in my small town school. Blue meant friendship, red meant love, and yellow meant secret admirer (squeal!). Throughout the day you’d receive blue carnations, a few red ones from your parents or boyfriend, and if you were lucky, the most coveted carnation: the YELLOW. Oh the suspense!
I remember students parading around from class to class proudly with their armful of carnations that clearly stated: “I am popular! I am loved by all! People have crushes on me!”
The carnations were a big deal, people.
It’s pretty crazy that 20+ years later, I still remember the carnation exchange. These small acts of love stuck with me and I remember feeling on top of the world when I’d receive one.
While small things don’t feel significant to adults, it’s important for us to remember that they are a big deal to kiddos.
