Happy Valentine's Day to my foreign visitors

Icelanders in general don't celebrate Valentine's Day, although flower shops and chocolate manufacturers have been trying for many years to add it to our collection of celebratory days. The reason is simple: we already have two such days, Bóndadagur for the men and Konudagur for the women. On these days it is traditional for people in relationships to do something nice for their spouses or significant others, and we clearly don't see the point in adding a third such day.
