Saint Dwynwen Day

1. St Dwynwen's Day in Wales

In Wales, there is an alternative to Valentine's Day, but they celebrate it a few weeks earlier on 25 January. Princess Dydd Santes Dwynwen's love was for an unattainable man, leaving her helplessly asking God for help. By removing the man from her mind, she was able to make her life useful again, upon which she decided to become a nun. It may sound very depressing, but of course there is nothing more beautiful than having an eternal, holy love.

2. Celebrate love in Denmark

In Denmark, they have a very original way of celebrating love, as there they combine the craving for love with humour. Their teasing notes are self-written and contain humorous expressions, but combined with loving rhymes.

3. Delayed love in Japan

In Japan, men are in luck, as they are spoilt with homemade chocolates by their wives. However, women will have to wait a bit longer for confirmation of mutual love, as it is not the men's turn until 14 March: the so-called white day.

4. Giving roses in Taiwan

Roses are often given for Valentine's Day, but in Taiwan they give an awful lot of them! The number and colours of flowers represent special messages according to Taiwanese tradition. Red roses indicate your only love, 99 roses mean eternal love and 108 of these blossoms indicate a marriage proposal.
