Brazil's Valentine's Day -Dia dos Namorados- 12 June

Dia dos Namorados (from Portuguese, which means: "Friends Day"), celebrated on June 12 in Brazil, near the day of St. Anthony's death on June 13. 

Like Valentine's Day, this day too is celebrated with gifts, romantic activities, decorations and celebrations. The term "Dia dos Namorados" is also used in other Portuguese-speaking countries.  
Antonius of Padua, also known as Saint Anthony, died on 13 June 1231 in Padua, Italy. Dia dos Namorados is celebrated on 12 June, on the eve of Saint Anthony's Day.
It is believed that Saint Anthony brings blessing to young couples for a happy and prosperous marriage.
Brazilian Valentine Day is celebrated with the exchange of gifts such as chocolate and flowers, nocturnal dates, home decoration and streets, and marches and carnivals of samba dancing and folk music.

Single women do a ritual called sympathy, which aims to help them find a husband or a good partner.
In Brazil, Valentine's Day is not celebrated because February 14 usually falls on the Brazilian carnival. Because Brazil does not celebrate Valentine's Day in February, many singles from the West love to be in Brazil on February 14 and stay away from the sticky romance that surrounds the rest of the world. American news sites have already announced that Brazil is the number one country to visit to celebrate the 
Valentine's Day.  

In other Portuguese-speaking countries, especially in Africa, Valentine's Day called "Dia dos Namorados" was celebrated on Valentine's Day in February.  
By coincidence, but right, the Dia dos Namorados are celebrating in the anniversary of the US Supreme Court's decision in 1967 to repeal the ban on interracial marriage across the United States.

World Marriage Day - The second Sunday in February

World Marriage Day is a day marked by the sponsorship of an American organization called the Worldwide Marriage Encounter, which is associated with the Catholic movement and aims to encourage and sanctify the institution of marriage.
The purpose of the wedding day is: "World Marriage Day respects the husband and wife as the basis of the family, the basic unit of society, and salutes the beauty of their loyalty, sacrifice and joy in the daily life of the married."

The idea to celebrate the marriage began in Baton Rouge, the capital of the state of Louisiana in the USA, when married couples encouraged the mayor, governor and bishop to declare Valentine's Day today "We believe in the anniversary". The event was very successful and the idea was presented and adopted by Other organizations that encourage marriage around the world.
In 1982, 43 U.S. governors announced the day and the festivities spread to U.S. military bases in foreign countries. In 1993 Pope John Paul II dedicated his greetings to World Anniversary and since then World Anniversary celebrations have continued to spread around the world.

Kiss A Ginger Day- January 12

Redheads are people with hot orange-red hair, light skin, sometimes freckled and sometimes even blue or green eyes.
Kiss A Ginger Day is a day created in 2009 by Derek Forgie, an actor, activist and stand-up comedian, Redhead of course, who wanted to empower the redheaded children around the world who sometimes suffer from child bullying others. He set this day in response to a day someone invented in November, a day called "Kick a ginger day," inspired by the South Park series.

Fun facts about Gingers:

In the distant past humans believed that redheads are saints because they stole the fire from the gods. Kiss A Ginger Day is a good opportunity to kiss gingers and get some of that fire 😉.

Redheads are rare in our world. Only 1-2% of the population are redheads. Hair color ranging from burgundy red to light copper is a genetic expression of a high concentration of the reddish pigment Phenomelanin and a low concentration of the dark pigment Eumelanin.

The country with the highest percentage of redheads in the world is Scotland. 13% of the population in Scotland are redheads and about 40% of them carry the recessive gene responsible for redheaded hair.

In the Bible it is written of King David that he was "reddish, with beautiful eyes."

Famous redheads: Rupert Grint, English actor (Ron Weasley in "Harry Potter" movies), Donald Trump, former US President, Prince Harry, English royalty, Michael C. Hall, actor Who plays the protagonist of the series "Dexter", Emma Stone, an American actress and more ...

How to celebrate Redhead Weapons Day?
Easy and simple of course. Find someone redheaded and kiss them after getting their permission. Of course there is no legitimacy to bother redheads on this day by offering kisses so offer only to those who know you. You can also send a virtual kiss or an air kiss. If you want to be a little more generous, you can hand out red candy kisses or Hershey kiss chocolate.

January 12 is also Marzipan Day
