We have never really celebrated Valentines Day before – in the end, it is just a day like any other and it’s not like we need a reminder to tell us how happy we are. In Finland, however, Valentines Day is more celebrated as a Friendship Day than a couple-day…with the result that I got free chocolate in all the shops that I went to today, and the number of people wishing me a Happy Valentines Day suddenly increased by 500%. And thanks to Karstens’ colleague (who insisted on Karsten being romantic today), I even received flowers 🙂
So, happy Friendship Day to everyone!!!
