12 VALENTINE'S DAYS

When we grow up, life becomes busier and busier, and we may start to make less effort to maintain relationships. Valentine’s Day is a day for expressing love to our beloved one, but comparing to other major festivals in the year, such as Christmas, Valentine’s Day seems to become less significant. Through this project, I am going to use the 12 Valentine’s Days in Korea as a theme to remind people that you don’t need to do much to maintain a relationship but just spend some time with your partner, and it is essential that a healthy relationship should involve the contribution from both partners.

 
 

In Korea, there are 12 Valentines’ Days. Every 14th day of every month is a Valentine’s Day, and Korean couples and lovers will have different celebrations for these festivals of romance and love. I have found it very interesting so I designed this calendar based on this unknown facts from Korean culture.

As I mentioned before, Valentine’s Day seems to become less significant and over commercialised nowadays, but in Eastern culture, (besides some middle east countries which don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day due to their religious beliefs) people value their bond with other people. Therefore, as a day for celebrating love, Valentine’s Day also seen as a big day for the lovers and couples.
