When you search for “Valentine’s Day” on Twitter, you won’t find many new messages about the holiday. Or, at the very least, you will scarcely find people still celebrating it.
However in China, the western holiday is big here and can stretch for a week after Valentine’s Day ends.
The Valentine’s spirit is still going on in terms of commercial merchandise and people are still talking about their gifts on weibos and other online forums.
On Sina microblog, SoStupidSoInnocent (好傻好天真ar菲愛執信) posted a photo of the Valentine’s Day postage stamps, which she is still willing to use.
People are still getting Valentine’s gifts, such as Ya_ani, who posted a picture of a gift that she had just received.
And Lulu posts a picture of a cup that she has been given to drink out of, a week after the holiday.
