Well, I was not around during December and January so... I just send a general Christmas card addressed to all the staff in the nursery rather than individual ones or gifts . I was thinking in making up for that by sending a box of chocolates tomorrow (as a thank you gesture from DS). Is it apropiate? it not uncommon in America to send valentines to friends, is the same here or they are reserved for "romantic" advances?
Clueless, I know, but I was already married when we moved to this country so no practical experience
Do kids not buy valentines cards for each other here, then? In Canada, when I was growing up, it was normal to buy cards for all your friends, but I don't think I've seen the boxes of cheap (funny, cute) valentines day cards here for kids.
Thanks for your answers, I think that as the amount of pros and cons are even, I would err on the safe side, will eat the chocolates and send something in Easter. But what do you send in Easter? eggs? chocolate rabbits? when do you send them? just right before Easter Sunday?
I'd get a selection of eggs, bunnys etc, whatever takes my fancy in Woollies or wherever and send them in on the last day of term before Easter hol. I normally think giving valentines among people other than lovers/couples or would-be is weird. I send in stuff because my DS is non-verbal with autism and can't tell the teachers how much he appreciates them or make them something etc.
Yeah, sorry, weird was the wrong word! I suppose I started sending valentine stuff for school staff because of DS's autism but do think its nice from little kids, while they still don't think its soppy! Also the staff love knowing they've at least got one thing on valentines!
