Hello Angels,

‘ My bounty is as boundless as the sea,

My love as deep.

The more I give to thee,

The more I have, for

Both are infinite.’

         Juliet Capulet

I love romance movies , especially in February.

In my opinion, love doesn’t have a month or day. Love is a fuel of life and it is in us.

Valentine’s day is an amazing excuse to celebrate love. Most people are so committed to their responsibilities that they don’t even realize love.

In the beginning of February, everything about love appears every corner of the street, stores even in supermarkets. I love this atmosphere so much.

I don’t know why but I love to watch Romeo and Juliet in February.

Romeo and Juliet’s ending is very sad but the love between two young makes the movie worth watching.

William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet has been adapted to movies many times.

I watched in theatre and its three movie adaptations. Costumes, theme of love and balcony scene are just amazing.
