Valentine' s Day

2nd February 2016

Yesterday I was in shopping mall and all decorations are red. Why? So the 14th February is approaching so it is one more  occasion to earn a lot of money. When I was a teenager I didn't celebrate Valentine's Day it was unknown day for us Polish people. But since 1990s it is becoming more and more popular. Currently is common here like Christmas or Easter.
Young and adults celebrate it. I love it , too.
A lot of items are on offer - most of them are red.






What about you? Do you celebrate it?

  1. It is the same here. Valentine's Day only arrived here in the 1980s.

  2. i think it is another way for retailers, card manufacturers and florists to drum up business, but i hope folks are thoughtful and caring with one another, too.

  3. I agree that the above is correct. ie. The Texan.
    Commercialism of this day has got out of all proportions,
    the greed of supermarket giants for the cost of one red rose
    is disgraceful - $15 for one stem.
    The romantic young bucks of the world would be best advised to grow their own flower garden of roses.
    I wonder just how much the suppliers of these roses - one stem or a bunch are paid by these greedy corporate people.
    Maybe the young bucks/blokes would do better to go to a florist shop or to the growers and select a lovely rose from there.
    In my younger days, many a love of my life at that time, got more than one rose!
    Ah the romance of youth!

  4. A load of rubbish is Valentines Day.
    We don't do it, but many do, if they want to waste their money that's their business.

  5. Hello Gosia, I think it is more for the younger generation. Hubby and I do not celebrate Valentines Day. But I like your photos of the decorations in the mall.

  7. I take every chance I get to tell the ones I love that I love them, Valentine's Day included! Everyone gets a small card, my daughters a bit of chocolate, a special dinner for my spouse. You can make it as expensive or in inexpensive as you wish.

  8. Interesting to hear how much popularity the holiday has gained in Poland in recent years. I don't celebrate it--possibly in part because I'm single, but then I don't celebrate many holidays anyway.
