There's a slight variation for Valentine's Day in Mexico. Yes, just like everywhere else, it's impossible to get a table anywhere and people get whiny about not having someone, and people who do get cornier than usual. But we also celebrate friendship - it's, literally, "The Day of Love and Friendship". So your friends and loved ones give you chocolates too - nobody eats alone or is deprived of the celebration. And I think that's special - after all, friends are there when relationships start and when they end and in every bit in-between... so they deserve a LOT of credit and love too.
This is the way I've always celebrated it, and I shall continue to do so. So for all of you wherever you are, Happy Love and Frienship Day!!! :D
Illustrator from Mexico with a taste for traveling, I enjoy creating detailed dreams in acrylic and watercolor,
and exploring my limits in any other media I come across. The fantastical 'what if's fascinate me. In my spare time, I make bubbles and jump on the bed. I eat chocolates and drink coffee, and step on crunchy leaves.
