Valentine's Day in Korea-
Valentine's Day in Scandinavia-
Usually Scandinavia’s perception is that of ‘jantelag’ but it is time to break the clutter and perceive them in the exactly opposite light – warm and positive! On the Valentine's Day, men send anonymous poems to women. For the simple reason of non-disclosure, the notes are signed with 1 dot for each letter in the man’s name. If the woman guesses the name correctly she is rewarded with an egg on Easter. And if she guesses wrong she owes him an egg on Easter.
Valentine's Day in China-
As the bible quotes, “And now these three remain, faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is Love.” On the Valentines Day, with immense faith in the matchmaker statue, the Chinese Love seekers visit the statue in a temple with a hope to find love. A closer look and we could find the ‘magic wand’ in the statue’s hand. Won’t we?

Valentine's Day in Germany-
The Brazilians seem to be a great believer of luck or fate and if you seem to belong to the same school of thought then celebrate Valentine's Day like them. Names of the people whom you like are placed in to a hat and then you randomly select one, if you are lucky enough, it could be the person you end up marrying. And we are left to wonder if Hogwarts has a hat for this?
