Curious to know how Russian girls celebrate Valentine’s Day? At Russian Girls Online, we are here to make sure you always know what’s going on! 

In America, we just say Valentine’s Day. But in Russia, they call it St. Valentine’s Day. Why? It’s actually not as warm and fuzzy as you might think. Emperor Claudius II executed two men on February 14 in the 3rd century A.D. Surprisingly, both of their names were Valentine. Because of these two martyred Christian saints, we now name February 14 Valentine’s Day (or St. Valentine’s Day).

How Valentine’s Day is Celebrated in Russia


But putting all darkness aside, Valentine’s Day is a fantastic opportunity to express your true feelings with the ones you cherish. Even in Russia. 

The first way that Valentine’s Day is celebrated in Russia is with flowers. You must know that flowers are a must for most occasions or holidays in Russia. But be careful: you need to know when to give odd- numbered flowers and even-numbered flowers. The meaning of flowers to Russian girls is very significant. From the color of the flowers to the type of flower, every detail matters. Don’t let your gift-giving gesture make the wrong impression. 

The second way that Valentine’s Day is celebrated in Russia is by giving a card with a romantic message. There are a few ways you can express your love to Russian girls on Valentine’s day:

  1. Will you be my valentine? (Ты бу́дешь мое́й Валенти́ной?)
  2. You mean so much to me. (Ты так много значишь для меня.)
  3. A hundred hearts would be too few to carry all my love for you. (Даже 100 сердец будет слишком мало, чтобы выразить всю мою любовь к тебя.)
  4. Love is just love. It can never be explained. (Любовь, это просто любовь. Её никогда нельзя объяснить.)
  5. Let all you do be done in love. (Пусть всё что ты делаешь, будет сделано в любви.)
