Valentine’s Day Traditions All Around the World

Valentine’s Day around the world is celebrated in the name of Saint Valentine, a widely recognised 3rd-century Roman saint, who became the patron saint of lovers, epileptics, and beekeepers.

Of course, the more countries, the more Valentines Day traditions. Keep scrolling down to know more!

1. England
We do not really make expensive gifts. First of all, there is a tradition of baking a cake in the shape of a heart for our partners. People also buy chocolates, valentine’s cards and soft toys, and flowers this special day. Also, we do give some anonymous valentines gifts.

 

2. France
French people like to celebrate in person. Hence why the most popular thing to do on Valentines Day is a weekend away, followed by a meal in a restaurant and giving flowers.

3. Philippines
In the Philippines, this is the day when young couples have the chance to marry in an event, which is sponsored by the government as a form of public service. Let’s be honest… this is pretty cool!

4. Spain
Día del Amor y la Amistad means ‘the day of love and friendship’. Therefore, Spanish people like to dine out this day. However, the most romantic day in Spain is October 9, when locals proudly celebrate the feast day of St. Dionysius (“San Dionisio” in Spanish) by making ‘macadora’, a marzipan figurine. Macadoras are made by men to gift to their female companions.

 

5. Estonia
In Eastonia, this celebration is for EVERYONE. They celebrate ‘friendship day’, known as Sobrapaev. So, this festival is for everyone, from couples to singles and also, for family members. People exchange gifts and go out for a nice dinner, or just to have a couple of drinks. We do love this way of thinking – no more lonely Valentines Day!
