Valentine’s Day in the Philippines is synonymous with red roses
(usually sold at a higher price than the usual), red shirts (for
those who are looking for partners), crowded movie houses and
restaurants, and of course, public plazas turned into lovers lane.
Filipinos have always been known as romantic people. And it is
mirrored during this special day of the Hearts. Flower shops will be
raided by men who will buy roses, tulips, and other types of floras
even at a price that is higher than the normal.
The most wonderful part of Valentine’s Day in the Philippines is the
fact that whether or not there is economic crisis in the country,
Filipinos always take time to hand out red roses or sweet stuff to
the people they care so much, it could be their loved ones, office
mates, friends, or even those who have hurt their feelings.
That’s uniquely Filipino style.
