Valentine is the season of romantic getaways, where couples visit choice cities to spend time with each other. For some, Valentine’s Day is nothing more than another day of the week while for others, it is a day to be expected.
Love is a beautiful thing. Butterflies in the tummy, flowers and cakes, chocolates and red colour. Valentine is the season of love. Lovers celebrating their partners in the most romantic ways, under the most exotic of atmospheres and with the most expensive of gifts.
Different regions also have different ways of celebrating this all-important lovers’ affair. In America for example, Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate friendship than it is about romance. But in France, it is solely a time to show love to your romantic partner. As a result of this, France is usually the choice holiday destination for couples during this season.
Whether it is the celebration of friendship or romance, Valentine’s Day provides a great opportunity for everyone to celebrate love. But here is an interesting fact not many people are aware of: there is such a thing as Valentine’s Week.
In Indian, Valentine’s Week is a prevalent practice – starting from 7th of February to 14th of February every year. So, while many are waiting for the 14th of February, some cultures already have a week-long love celebration going on.
