Today we’ll actually look at the theme of Valentine’s day - 情人节 (qíng rén jié) because it is Valentine’s day in some parts of the world, not China where Valentine’s day is actually on July 7th of the lunar calendar each year.
玫瑰 (méi guī) Rose
The first word related to Valentine’s day is 玫瑰 (méi guī) which means ‘rose’. A question that some people may have is 送玫瑰花的数量都代表了什么意思? (Sòng méiguī huā de shùliàng dōu dàibiǎole shénme yìsi?) What does the number of roses you give mean?
爱 (ài) Love
Another related word we can create is 爱 (ài). This means ‘love’. A way of using it in a sentence is 无法用言语来形容我对你的爱。(Wúfǎ yòng yányǔ lái xíngróng wǒ duì nǐ de ài.) Words cannot describe my love for you.
阳光 (yáng guāng) Sunshine
Finally, we can create the word 阳光 (yáng guāng) which means ‘sunshine’. A way of using it in a sentence is 你是我的阳光。(Nǐ shì wǒ de yángguāng.) You are my sunshine.
