Valentine’s Day in Denmark

27 Jan

The Danish have three popular traditions in celebrating Valentine’s Day.  The youngsters take great care in following these traditions so that they will have successful and romance filled lives.  They give “lover’s cards” which is very popular, but they also give white flowers to their loves called “Snowdrops”.  They also write special love poems called “gaekkebrev”.  It is said that the men jot down love poems to their loves without signing them.  If their beloveds figure out who the poem is from then she will be rewarded with an Easter Egg on that year.

What Valentine’s Day customs do you have?  Do you write poems?  Buy gifts?  Give red flowers or white flowers?
