Valentine’s Day 2021

Let’s check out some interesting  Valentine’s day traditions or celebrations of love around the world. This day isn’t all about flowers and chocolates around the world. Different countries celebrate it in their own way. 

  • Argentina – For A Week Of Sweetness – Argentinians don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day in Feb, but “the week of sweetness” in July. It’s the day when lovers exchange kisses and receive chocolates and other sweets.

  • France – Epicentre Of Romance – between 12th and 14th February. One can see the beautiful yards, trees, and homes decorated with love cards, roses, and proposals for marriage flakes. It probably is one of the most beautiful Valentine’s Day traditions in the world.

  • South Korea – For A Unique Set Of Experience – The romantic couples in South Korea celebrate the day of love on the 14th of each month. Yeah, you read it right! “the day of roses” is celebrated in May, “the day of kisses” is celebrated in June, “the day of hugs in December” and single people celebrate “the black day” in April by eating black noodles.

  • Bulgaria – Day Of Winemakers – On 14 February, San Trifon Zartan is celebrated in Bulgaria, which means “day of winemakers”. Young and old couples celebrate their love with a glass of wonderful local wine.

  • Wales – Day Of San Dwynwen – The country celebrates its day of love on Jan 25, which is called the “day of San Dwynwen.” On the day, lovers exchange unique and beautifully handcrafted wooden spoons to each other

  • Estonia – A Festival For Everyone – On 14 Feb, Estonia celebrates friendship day known as Sobrapaev. This amazing festival includes everyone, from couples to singles. So not just couples, but family members and friends also exchange gifts and celebrate love.

  • Japan – Exchange Of Unique Gifts – Japan does it quite differently. It is celebrated on 14th Feb and women buy gifts and chocolates for their male companions or lovers. Men can’t return gifts until March 14, which is called the “white day”.

As we celebrate Valentines Day, let us think about the greatest love of all.  God’s Love for us.  God loves us so much he sent His only Son to die for our sins.   John 3:16 tells us, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”

So here’s my question for you.  Do you know God’s Love?  Has God’s love faded and love for other things replacing it?  So how’s your loving relationship with God?  Maybe you never had a real relationship with God… Or maybe your relationship is not as good as it first was.

We are all standing on the edge of eternity. None of us are promised another day. So please don’t put this off! There is no better time than the present to start or maybe renew your relationship and love with God. Take a moment now and dedicate yourself to Christ Our Savior.

Please… if you don’t know Christ or have fallen away please pray… Tell God you believe His Son Jesus paid for your sins and rose again. Tell God you are sorry and want to start Living for Him. He will forgive your sins and mistakes and give you Everlasting Life with Him… and place His Spirit deep within your heart. In 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Please remember this… To enter the Kingdom of Heaven you must have a relationship with God. Do you Really LOVE God?

I pray that God will truly Help and Bless you.
