Celebrating Valentine’s Day Differs Internationally
Once a religious holiday to honor St. Valentine, Valentine’s Day is now celebrated on February 14th of every year as a secular holiday that typically involves the exchange of cards and chocolate between loved ones.
However, at Celebrating Valentine's Day Differs Internationally from TOPICS Online Magazine, international students explain how Valentine's Day is celebrated in their countries, reflect on how romance differs in countries, tell a story about meeting a husband-to-be, and share Valentine's Day poems.
