RE-POSTED FROM MARCH 10, 2009
Every year, Valentine’s Day is celebrated on February 14 in many countries around the world.
In Japan, the holiday is followed up with a second holiday called White Day that comes exactly a month later.
With this second holiday coming soon, the NY EC BLOG has decided to talk about what we did during our last Valentine’s Day!
The 1970s were reborn at EC NEW YORK this past Valentine’s holiday as students and teachers joined together to play two great “couples” games from classic American T.V.
First was “The Newlywed Game,” in which married couples matched answers to see which couple knew each other best.
(Who was the winning couple? Two classmates ― Massoud and Yuka ― who had been brought together at the last minute to play the game! Ha!)
The second game was the ever-popular “Dating Game,” in which bachelors and bachelorettes searched for love through revealing questions.
Sample Question No. 1: “Bachelor No. 1, it’s 10,000 years ago. You and I live together in a cave. What do you do?”
Sample Question No. 2: “Bachelor No. 3, do you believe in true love? Really? REALLY?”
Sample Question No. 3: “Bachelorette No. 2, if you were a wild animal, what would you do to me?”
Clearly, the intention of the host and players was not romance but comedy.
Check out the costumes that a few of the participants wore for the funky occasion. Yikes!
