I'M BACK

. . . just in time to celebrate
Valentine's Day!

You know, it's funny,
how Valentine's Day is a big deal
in some countries, especially in the U.S.,
while other countries have romantic holidays
other days of the year.

Valentine's Day is February 14 in:

United States
Canada
Mexico
Australia
Europe
Russia
South Africa
United Arab Emirates
Thailand
and
Turkey

Colombia celebrates
Dia del Amor
the 3rd Saturday in September.

(Have you bought chocolates and flowers
for your Sweetheart yet?)

  1. In Romania we celebrate DRAGOBETELE on 24th February. Since few years ago we also celebrate Valentine's Day, but it has more recognition among teens.
    Great photo!

  5. I like your Valentine image, Rick! During the communist time we didn't celebrate Valentine's Day in Bulgaria. Now is different :-) On the 14th of February Bulgaria celebrates officially The Day of the wine but for all the people is the Day of love :-) Walking here in Germany I see so many presents, parfums, hearts in the shops. They all look too artificial for me (I'm not sure if "artificial" is the proper English word :-) Have a wonderful Pre-valentine's weekend :-)

  6. HEY! Good to see you back :)Beautiful image Rick.......but as per my personal opinions I feel offended by the idea that it's insane to make someone feel special just 'for a day' ....why wait ...why not live in moments and just love??

  8. In Brasil we celebrate Dia dos namorados on June, 12. Some people say that its because of San (Santo) Antonio, a portuguese saint that helps women that want to get married. Santo Antonio's day is on the 13 june.Glad you're back, Rick. Hugs
