Chinese couples celebrate Valentine’s Day on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month, which in 2012 is August 23rd. It is now the 11th of August here in Chengdu, China, and I only see “signs” of the impending celebration of love and Soulmate relationships posted on a signboard near the entrance of Peter’s, a local Tex-Mex restaurant.
It seems appropriate to me that we celebrate this loving occasion on the other side of the planet, on the other side of the calendar; but really, where is the fanfare, commercialization and marketing genius that America’s greeting cards, florists, restaurants and advertisers annually attach to February 14? A single, easily overlooked signboard? Could this be a reflection of the value and worth Chinese culture places on Soulmate relationships? Could it be that Western commercialization hasn’t caught up with Chinese culture? Yet? Could it be that the Chinese couples already place such a high value on Soulmate relationships that most Chinese Soulmates don’t need a special occasion to notify their true love that they are an important and treasured part of Soulmate love and life?
I may never learn the answers to my question nor understand the differences with respect to how Americans treat Valentine’s Day compared to Chinese celebrate Valentine’s Day – it will be fun to observe if Chinese advertisers and marketers get more aggressive and creative as the 23rd approaches.
