The Morning Thing Takes a Look at Valentine’s Day Around the World

While the U.S. has its own special brand of both heartfelt and commercialized Valentine’s celebrations, it is not the only country to devote at least a day to celebrate love. Some countries have a fresh take on February 14th while others have an entirely different day marked on their calendars. Regardless, there are a lot of cool and unique ways that people around the world express their love, so the Morning Thing decided to take a look at some of them.

Perhaps this list will give you some new ideas for how to celebrate Valentine’s this day. How about giving your wife an intricately carved love-spoon? Try treating your husband to a marzipan figurine instead of chocolate. Want to feel brave at school? Go ahead and pin your crush’s name to your sleeve. The options are varied and plentiful. You can check out the entire list HERE.

Regardless of what you do or how you do it, be sure to show love to the people in your life this year- and not just romantic love! Use this time to show appreciation for your friends and family, as well as the romantic relationship in your life if you have one. You don’t have to be in a relationship to show love!
