Celebration of the DAY OF LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP in Colombia.

In most countries Valentine’s Day is celebrated in February but in Colombia the date was modified by merchants in 1969  considering that February is the first month of the school season.

And later it was decided that roses and the chocolates were going to  give on the third Saturday of the month of September as at that moment it was the only month without any celebration.

 

On this occasion, the latest survey by the National Federation of Merchants, Fenalco, revealed that the sale of the fresh cut flowers were increased approximately 10%, followed by chocolates or candies among others.
