# 2 Japan
On February 14 in Japan it is quite similar to what is done in most countries on this date, only that there are women who would give chocolates to men. I love this idea! And it is not that any type of chocolate is given, but the type is determined according to the nature of the relationship, for example, you provide one type of chocolate to your boss, another type of chocolate to your best friend and another type to you couple. Interesting!
# 3 Finland
Instead of celebrating Valentine’s Day on February 14 , the day of friendship is celebrated in Finland; The closest friends send letters and the couples choose, for the most part, this day to commit. After all, the couple is a best friend, right? So I really like the idea of the Finns.

People in Wales does not celebrate Valentine’s Day on February 14 , but they do on January 25 in “St. Dwynwen’s Day”, patron of the nation.
