Today is Valentine’s day and also the 15th day of the Lunar New Year, which is also coincidentally the Chinese Valentine’s day as well! In Chinese culture, on the 15th day of the Lunar new year, single girls go to the lake to throw oranges with their names and phone numbers written on it….. and single guys on the other side of the lake would wait to pick up the oranges and call the numbers on them. Corny, but believe it or not people still do it nowadays….. at least over here people do it for the fun of it. I doubt any guys will be picking up the oranges floating around in the water but I wouldn’t mind jumping in to grab some of them for dessert!
Chinese Valentine coincides with Valentine’s day every 19 years!
