Valentine’s Day as one of the most popular holidays in Poland

February 13th, 2015 is glad to inform that Polish Post is to release a special stamp celebrating the holiday of love and sincere feelings. Valentine's Day (Walentynki) is one of the most romantic days of the year celebrated in many countries including Poland on February 14.

Valentine's Day focuses on love, romance, appreciation and friendship. Chocolates, candies shaped in red hearts, and other gifts are given to loved ones on Valentine's Day. Mother's Day, Father's Day and Women's Day are also observed in Poland, in which friends, partners, and family members received gifts, cards or flowers.

Valentine's Day has not been celebrated in Poland until very recently. Only after the collapse of the Eastern European Block and the consequent opening of Poland's borders this well known, especially in English-language cultures holiday entered Polish society. Romantic Poles were very quick in adopting Valentine's Day and nowadays it as popular in Poland as anywhere else.
