  1. The Brazilian version of Valentine's Day is celebrated on June 12th. It's said that it's because of the proximity of June 13th - Saint Anthony's Day. Saint Anthony is the patron Saint of weddings. Men and women usually exchange gifts and go on dates. They usually have a romantic evening like going to the movies or to a fancy restaurant. Well, I think it's a good day for business people to boost their sales.

  8. i`m sorry if my english still not good.

    i think valentines day isn`t very important to celebrate.
    why ?.
    because we could give a gift to someone who sepcial for us everytime, and my religion doesn`t allowed us to celebrate it.

  10. I think,this day is forcing of consumptive world.The Valentine's Days versions of products are too expensive.In my country couples give gifts each other and/or go to a restaurant for a romantic night.A lot of parties are organized for lonely people in Valentine's Day. :)
