Looking for love: how it is celebrated around the world

Love is in the air.

Romantics in the west are used to the tradition of Valentine’s Day. They exchange chocolates, flowers, and special cards in the name of love on February 14. While Valentine’s Day is a major societal and commercial holiday for people living in Canada and the United States, many countries have their own special customs and festivals that honour the feeling of love. The map below details different and interesting traditions from around the globe.
