How often do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?
Did you know that in Western culture there are 12 types of Valentine’s Day celebrations?
Evidently, every 14th day of every month is a *valentine’s day*. If you are a non~Westerner and you didn’t know, no worries. I’m a westerner and I didn’t know either! The list of various V-days days is below and quite frankly, after reading about what is celebrated on each 14th day of the month, I am content to just stick with my family tradition of handing out small pieces of chocolates to my kids on February 14th of every year.
* January ~ Diary Day
* February ~ Saint Valentine’s Day
* March ~ White Day
* April ~ Black Day
* May ~ Yellow & Rose Day
* June ~ Kiss Day
* July ~ Silver Day
* August ~ Green Day
