Valentine's Day in Poland / Write your card in Polish!

Couldn't resist :)
Valentine's Day (in Polish: "Walentynki" / "Dzień Zakochanych") is celebrated in Poland since the beginning of the 90's. This American holiday became very popular in Poland and won hearts of the younger generation, but not only. People find it to be another ocassion to celebrate, go out and have a good time.
And it's celebrated in the same way - cards, flowers, chocolates, dinner, movies... Who doesn't like a holiday like this?
It's a perfect day to tell someone "I love you" - "Kocham Cię" or "I like you very much" - "Bardzo Cię lubię" for the very first time. It can be done in an anonymous way ("anonimowo") by sending a card or by a song dedication on the radio. However, most people decide to be brave and confess their feelings ("uczucia") in person.
