The idea to create Day of Love belongs to a national showbiz-maker Besik Chubinidze. His idea was supported by many Georgian parliamentarians and the holiday was established in the end of the 1990s. Although Day of Love was created to totally replace Valentine's Day, nowadays both holidays are celebrated.
Traditionally, lovers give each other gifts, like candies or perfume, and flowers, make surprises on Day of Love. Many dare to show their secret feelings and even make a proposal. This holiday is especially admired by sellers of flowers and candies, since these are very popular gifts.
The Orthodox Christian Georgians celebrate one more holiday, that is devoted to true love, as to a feeling between a woman and a man. Day of Spiritual Love was established under the initiative of the Georgian Orthodox Church, the holiday is observed on July 16.Remind me with Google Calendar
