Oh, the day of mush, Valentine’s Day, is here! While it is enjoyed all across the globe, it is celebrated in very special ways in countries like the UK, US, Canada, Mexico, France, Australia, Denmark, and Italy.
Whenever one thinks of this day, they think about cosy and cuddly huddling together with their darling under the covers, talking about nothing and everything and whispering sweet nothings in each other’s ears.
Cakes and Cards

Sometimes, we find ourselves floundering to find the right words to convey our true feelings to our loved ones. In such a situation, it is better to get a beautiful card that has just what we want to say. Did you know that close to 150 million Valentine’s Day cards are sent every year in the US? Just imagine the glee of the recipients who feel treasured and loved by receiving warm words, gifts, and yummy treats from their sweethearts. A report said that an average American spends more than 160 USD on Valentine’s Day gifts. More than the value of the actual gift, it is the thought behind it that matter more.
If you haven’t done so already, you must order Valentine day cakes at the soonest. If you are the quirky type, how about you go for a cupid-shaped cake? For those who don’t know, Cupid is a mythical winged cherub and the son of the goddess of love, Venus. He is most often associated with Valentine’s Day and is said to bring destined lovers together.
This special day is not just for couples, though. Many traditions around the world celebrate non-romantic love on this day. For example, Mexico celebrates Valentine’s Day as a day of love and friendship and calls it Dia del amor y la amistad.
Similarly, the Finns celebrate it as Friend’s Day and call it Ystavanpaiva. A unique type of day is celebrated on February 13 called Galentine’s Day, which appears to have come from a TV show called ‘Parks and Recreation’. On this day, women friends get together and celebrate their friendship and platonic love for one another.
