We are already into our second month of the year Bingo buddies. With January, the start of 2016 behind us it is all about the heart this month. It is about lovers and potential lovers as many will ask with baited breath “will you be my Valentine”?

St Valentine’s Day is Sunday February 14th and considered one of the most romantic holidays of the year. This romantic day is recognized in many countries throughout the world. Here is a glimpse of some of them and how they celebrate:

France – Valentine’s Day is thought to originate here after being in imprisoned in the Tower of London in 1415 Charles, the Duke of Orleans sent love letters to his wife. Today sending cards is a very popular tradition not only for this country but around the world.

Italy – One old tradition was single young woman would wake up before dawn on Valentine’s Day and get a glimpse of their future husband or at least get a sneak peek of a male who will resemble her partner. Today the Italians give gifts to their romantic interests. A favorite is the baci perugina – a chocolate covered hazelnut with a sweet romantic quote in 4 different languages on the wrapper.

South Africa – Have you ever heard of the phrase “wearing your heart on your sleeve”? The ladies in this region quite literally do this for St. Valentine’s day! In a tradition known as Lupercalia (borrowed from the ancient Romans) women pin the name of their love interest on their shirtsleeve. It also reveals to the men who are their secret admirers.

Philippines – Valentine’s Day has become a popular date for getting married and renewing wedding vows. The number of increased couples tying the knot on the special day is perhaps higher than any other day of the year including anniversaries.

England – The tradition starts on the eve of Valentine’s Day where women put one bay leaf on each corner of their pillow and one in the middle. This is in hopes they will have dreams of their future husband. Some single ladies otherwise prefer to dip bay leaves into rose water and then spread across their pillows.
