China. In China also celebrate the equivalent of Valentine’s Day — Holiday CNNIC. Girls cut shapes from watermelon and melon and wish to marry them.
Wales. The Welsh don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. But they have a Holy day, Dwynwen the patron of all lovers. The holiday is celebrated on January 25. You won’t find the Welsh celebrating St. Valentine instead of people in Wales celebrate St. Dwynwen, the Welsh patron Saint of lovers, on January 25. Traditional romantic gift is a carved spoon pattern which has a definite value. For example, the key symbolizes the key to a man’s heart.
France. Paris is considered one of the most romantic cities in the world. They say that the first Valentine appeared in France, when the Duke of Orleans being in prison sent love letters to his wife. Valentine’s Day in France, there is a procession of “Une Loterie dAmour”. All the lonely people out on the streets, stop at each house and shout “Be my Valentine”. And if the offer to respond, then perhaps a new born couple.
Denmark. On Valentine’s Day we give our favorite Valentines and order flowers delivery on the house. In Denmark, the flowers have a special relationship. On Valentine’s Day in Denmark, decided to give the snowdrops. And instead of Valentines men give women gaekkebrev – a humorous letter consisting of a funny poem.
Korea. February 14, girls give their men chocolates. Men also make a gift in return on March 14, in the so-called “White day”. The singles also have their day – the “Black day” (celebrated April 14). On this day, singles get together and eat jjajangmyun (noodles with black beans).
