Here's a coupla' fun facts I bet you didn't know about Valentine's Day ... 1. In Finland they celebrate Ystävänpäivä - this translates as 'Friend’s day' and is all about having fun with your homies rather than your SO. 2. The association of love and red roses dates back to Roman Mythology, they are said to be the fave flower of the Roman Goddess, Venus. 3. In Japan the script is flipped as women gift the men home made chocolates on the 14th, exactly a month later on 'White Day', those same lucky recipients repay the gesture with white chocolates or flowers for the gals. Everyone knows chocolate is the language of lurve.
