Just as any other holiday, I wondered if Valentine’s Day would be any different in Spain. We were in Old Town near the Municipal Market today running some errands. I noticed so many men walking around with beautiful bouquets of flowers. I also noticed several ladies with a single rose or flower in hand. So it appears at first glance that it is a “Flowers” day, just as it is in the U.S..
Valentine’s Day – differences I did notice were:
- The men were purchasing and delivering the flowers themselves. This may be because we live in a very pedestrian friendly town.
- I did not see any florist delivery trucks, nor have I since we have been here. I am sure they must have them, probably not as common.
- This day seems to be more for the couples rather than about the kids. I think I agree with this one. I must say that the kids were a little disappointed they didn’t celebrate a school.
Gifts or no gifts, any location anywhere in the world…. Valentine’s Day is about LOVE and we’ve got that no matter where we are! We like to show our love all year-long, but if you have a gift for a special day we have a great Unique Gift Guide for you! We would also love to share a great post from one of our favorite traveling families, The Nomadic Family. They have a great article about Love around the world.
Happy Valentine’s Day to you! Do you have any special plans?
