9. A Game of Love in Denmark
Although they’ve only really celebrated Valentine’s Day since the 1990s, the Danes already have several of their own traditions. One of the sweetest is that men give women Joke Cards or gaekkebrev, with funny rhymes written on intricately cut paper. They sign their names with dots only, and the objects of their affection must guess whom the missives are from. If the women are right, they win an Easter egg later in the year.
