Happy Valentine’s Day!
I am not a person who enjoy too much of a western holiday. However, Shanghai is moving fast to embrace any holiday possible, from Christmas, to Women’s day.
Today, the Xujiahui area is full of a special atmosphere – the smell of love? It is even more crowded and busy, and it seems every girl (OK. Not every, but many) has a handful of roses on the street.
So, happy Valentine’s Day!
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY TO YOU AND YOURS
Women’s day is celebrated to a far greater extent in China than the US.
Valentines’ day is not even considered a holiday in the west. Only Chinese are most serious for this day, more than any other country.
jqian: I’m not so sure. Valentine’s is pretty important in Australia/US, unless you’re single of course. Forgetting to get the right present in time is a relationship-limiting move.
hmmm, jqian t I am not sure about “Only Chinese are most serious for this day…”
As it over here in London, there are plenty of men and women go out celebrate on the day dinning together; people send and recieve Valentine cards; women recieves roses and curdley toys.
It’s got nothing to do with serious or not serious.
It is more of commercial-induced blindness of people. Let’s face it is just another excuse for companies to attempt to get you to buy large quantities of overpriced, badly made and tacky goods.
Then let us pray to Saint Valentine that he get us pardon of our sins. Amen. :)
