In Finland Valentine’s Day is Ystävänpäivä, which translates to Friend’s Day. Whilst the day is, admittedly, becoming increasingly commercialised I think it is nice to have a day dedicated, not to romantic love and relationships, but to remembering and appreciating friends.

Maybe I’ll try to explain it again next year.
