Saint Valentine's Day

Next month, on February 14th, we will be celebrating Valentine's Day. It's so wonderful how American people celebrate this day, sharing words of love with friends ,kids and family. All the decorations ,  cards and candies  to celebrate this day are amazing . 
 In my country, Brazil, it's really differente. We celebrate on Jun 12 and just couples enjoy this day.

In Brazil, the Dia dos Namorados (lit. "Day of the Enamored", or "Boyfriends'/Girlfriends' Day") is celebrated on June 12, when couples exchange gifts, chocolates, cards and flower bouquets. This day was chosen probably because it is the day before the Festa junina (Saint Anthony's day), known there as the marriage saint, when traditionally many single women perform popular rituals, called simpatias, in order to find a good husband or boyfriend.
