Valentine Is Like Halloween

Valentine Is Like Halloween.ย Don’t jump into conclusions, I don’t haveย any horrific experience with Valentines day, ever. This correlation of Valentine with Halloween is concluded by someone else, and she has a pretty good reason of coming to this statement.

When your four-year old daughter comes to you and asks an innocent question like, โ€œMamma, Do you know Valentines Day?โ€, what will be your first reaction?

My first thought was, how did she know about Valentine Day? Then, I thought, oh, who am I kidding, she goes to school, and kids today, they know almost everything, well almost, thank God. ๐Ÿ˜ ย 

So, instead of just saying yes, and explaining to her what Valentines day is, like any good parent must have done, but not me; I promptly said – โ€œNoโ€.

โ€œNo, I don’t know about Valentines Day.” ย 
Don’t blame me, I just wanted to know, what she knows about it. Try this method, you will hearย some very cute answers to life’s difficult problems.

So, I asked, โ€œWhat is Valentine Dayโ€?


Tisha, my daughter, – โ€œYou don’t know? Oh…. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ” ย 

โ€œValentine is like Halloweenโ€.

Now, this was a shocker.

Well, wait for it, she explained it to me too, once my curiosity asked her, โ€œHowโ€.


Tisha : โ€œValentine is like Halloween, Mamma. On Valentine, kids go to party, and they get candies, and they play with their friends, and everyone loves them, give them treats. Teacher will give us a party and we will play. Lots of candies, mamma!!” ๐Ÿ˜Ž ย ย 
โ€œMamma, I want to go to Valentines party… plzz….plz… plz…take me to valentines party.โ€

I did get a pretty good laugh out of it. She is super excited about her party. Me and kids have made some pretty cool gifts, small hearts, for their class friends and teachers. All set for party.
Here is to an interesting Valentines day, which is just like a Halloween. ๐Ÿ˜› ย  ย  ย  ย

  • 2 mashed Bananas
  • 1 cup Oats
  • 10-12 Raisins (optional)


  • Mix Oatmeal with mashed bananas.
  • Add Raisins to the mixture and mix.
  • Scoop out mixture on cookie sheet and bake them for 15 minutes at 350.
  • It would be lightly brown when done.
  • Take them out and let them cool for 2 minutes before serving.

It is a good way to eat Oatmeal and Banana together. These cookies can be served with tea or coffee, or they can be eaten by themselves.
