One of the great benefits of teaching English abroad comes in the form of opportunities to celebrate holidays in foreign lands, and Valentine's Day is no different.

Whatever the true story may be, love is a global phenomenon and Valentine’s Day is celebrated around the world in fascinating and different ways.
