Saint Valentine’s Day, also known as Valentine’s Day, is observed on February 14th. This day is celebrated by millions every year and in many countries all around the world. This is a great opportunity for employers to show your gratitude for your international and domestic employees alike. Your management team can shower your employees and participants with cards and candies!

Due to Carnival being held each year around the same time they forgo celebrating on February 14th and instead celebrate Dia dos Namorados, or “Lovers’ Day,” on June 12th. Celebrations for Dia dos Namorados in Brazil and those for Valentine’s Day in most other countries are similar. Typically, couples exchange romantic gifts, such as chocolates or flowers, and they may also share a “date night”. Additionally, beautifying home decorations are common as a part of the celebration. The day is festive, with colorful street decorations, parades, and carnivals. Common musical celebrations include samba dancing and other folk music celebrations.
