Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so I thought it would be interesting for you to know how this day is celebrated here - as an expat living in Poland, a traveller who wishes to visit Poland one day, or just a regular reader of The LadyBug who would like to know more about Poland. As you very well know by now, we - as people, as society - love to "borrow" things from one culture to another. We do that until the thing that we have "borrowed" gets assimilated and becomes tradition. When you think about Valentine's Day, you mostly think about the USA and the postcards with hearts popping all over... you would not say this is a typical Polish tradition. I am coming from an ex-communist country - just like Poland was - and I know how ones the curtain fell we were dead set upon the task of assimilating as much as we could from America and it's way of life. The young ones welcomed Valentine's Day with arms wide open.
The Twisted Red LadyBug - have a wonderful Walentynki
