Though you can find me all over the world now,
I was born in Italy.

And people dance with me too.

There is a saying that love conquers all, and Valentine's Day is a holiday celebrating love.
People give and get love, and people are happy when they have it, and sad when they don't have it. Everybody wants to be loved, and people hate losing love.

When someone who acts like your friend, but is actually your enemy, has betrayed you. People hate to be betrayed. When you trust somebody, they can betray you, and people who are betrayed may, as a result, hate the betrayer.

Operas are performed in large Opera Houses, and were invented in Italy. People in opera sing the words and the ballerinas dance to the music.
