We're drawing near to one of my least favorite holidays, Valentine's Day. Here in America, it is a terribly commercialized (as is every holiday) that has been totally blown out of proportion. It has absolutely nothing to do with it's origin. The common citizen doesn't even know it's origin. I didn't until I decided to do a little research on the topic.



I'm just curious, how is St. Valentine's Day celebrated in your country? Is it celebrated at all?

Hiya Kentucky gal,

Around here, it's not that much of a big thing... Still, one would expect you to bring flowers to your sweetheart or significant other, just like in the US.
Which means it's mostly with florists that you'd see it advertised, not necessarily in supermarkets or department stores, I would think.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
But let's not get sidetracked here, Ogre... The original question from KYSheepLover was about celebrating Valentine's Day in our respective countries : anything particular you'd do in China to mark the occasion ?
it is just the same manner as western countries I think, these years.

and it is a western festival actually.
