lycklig Alla hjärtans dag, Hyvää ystävänpäivää, Alles Gute zum Valentins Tag, Valentines dydd yn hapus, Kekasih hari gembira, Joyeux Saint-Valentin, Masayang Araw ng mga Puso or Feliz Dia De San Valentin. These are words with the same meaning, but spoken in different languages — Happy Valentine’s Day!

A tradition that mostly celebrated every 14th of February, Valentine’s Day is as special as anniversary for married couples or in a relationship. Lovers tend to be aggressive and overly romantic during this day. It’s likely that you would bump into many couples along your way and if you are single, you’ll be dying in envy. For many, this is the only day where they can explicitly express their love to their crush or partner. In some countries, you won’t be surprise if hotels and restaurants are fully-booked. That is, you know what comes next after the date, right? However, there are also couples who aren’t as enthusiastic and aggressive. There are anti-social couples out there who don’t bombarded their newsfeed with their romantic getaways and cheesy Valentine ideas.

Japan has one of the most peculiar Valentine celebration. It maybe known to some, but in case you haven’t known, every Valentine’s Day, it’s the woman that gives chocolates or sweets to the guy. Sounds interesting?

However, if you are the type of a Japanese woman who doesn’t know how to bake, the only thing you can do is buy a ready-made chocolates at the candy shops which you can give to your male office mates or guy friends (Giri-choco).

The Philippines

Isn’t that sweeter?

SOUTH AFRICA

Capetown

South Africa followed the history of Valentine’s Day. Lupercalia, where it was celebrated as an ominous ritual for many centuries happened to coincide with the Valentine’s Day. Thus, this ominous ritual consists of “sacrifice or act of sacrifice” became part of the Valentine’s Day. While it’s still debatable and unclear for historians whether it has something to do with the Valentine’s Day or if there is a relationship between the two, Lupercalia festival is known as its earliest festival ancestor. The early festival was intended to enable fertility, and is also associated to matchmaking lottery, thus, why the correlation hypothetically existed.

Valentine’s Day was widely associated to St. Valentine, a Roman saint in the third century that was commemorated in February 14. He is the patron saint of epilepsy and his Saint’s day was traditionally associated to courtly love. Thus, where the celebration name originated. Today, we are celebrating this romantic occasion all over the world. What’s the best way to celebrate it is to give presents like chocolates and flowers to your loved ones.
