Valentines Day in Paris is not what it is like in the States. I think a lot of people come to Paris to celebrate the romantic holiday but its nothing like the Hallmark holiday we have. I arrived on February 1, 2013 last year and you barely knew that Valentines Day was coming. In the States the aisles are lined with red and pink from the day after Christmas until February 15th. Paris is a romantic city year round. The city has romance oozing out from all ends. So if you are planning to celebrate Valentines Day in Paris you are a lucky one but if you can’t any other day will do!
