7 Unusual Valentine’s Day Traditions from Around the World



In Denmark, snowdrop flowers rather than roses are the classic gift. Lovers — especially young ones — often exchange romantic or funny poems, too.



Chinese Valentine’s Day is also known as the Qixi Festival, and falls on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month. On this day, young girls pay a visit to their local temple to pray for wisdom and other traditional talents of a good spouse. They make wishes for a happy love life and pray to meet a good and loving husband.



In Germany, big, heart-shaped cookies decorated with loving words are a popular Valentine’s Day gift. Some even have a ribbon attached so they can be worn like a necklace!
