  4. actually we don't have Valentines at all. But our calendars are different from yours, which is why our Christmas is in January and New Year too :)

    1. well I don't know if it goes outside Serbia or not. But the church declares the date to be in July. Though I figure it's more a day honoring the dead saint than a cheesy romantic holiday
