Love is in the snow. Valentine's Day
Valentine's Day is here! A day to celebrate love and tell your significant other how much they mean to you, Valentine's Day is perhaps one of the most popular holidays around the world. Although its exact origins are not known, it is associated with the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia and the Christian feast day of Saint Valentine. But today, Valentine's Day has evolved into a huge cultural and commercial celebration of romantic love.
For the lovebirds out there, you can always keep it simple with a dinner date or some red roses. But, for a really grand gesture, you could whisk your soulmate away to Japan's Otaru Snow Light Path Festival, pictured on our homepage, where the warm glow of romance will help keep those icy temperatures at bay. Happy Valentine's Day!
