Celebrating El Dia del Amor y la Amistad with Colombian Women

What's the fuss about El Dia del Amor y la Amistad? What is it? This is the day Colombians celebrate their Valentine’s Day. We all know that Valentine’s Day or the feast of San Valentin is celebrated annually on February 14.

Its history dates back to the 3rd century A.D. in the Imperio Romano or the Roman Empire, where Emperador Claudio II executed two men -- both men named Valentine -- on February 14 of different years as far as legend goes. Their martyrdom was honored by the Catholic Church with the celebration of St. Valentine’s Day.

What’s more interesting is the way Colombians celebrate Valentine’s day. Instead of celebrating in the month of February (14 de Febrero), Colombians will celebrate their Dia del Amor y la Amistad Septiembre. Yes, weird isn’t it?

Every country has their own culture and tradition which differs from another country, and no exemptions for the way they celebrar el amor or celebrate love.

Dia del Amor y la Amistad is celebrated on the third Saturday of September and it’s a tradition in which friends, colleagues, couples, and acquaintances express their gratitude, love, and affection.

Some of you may be wondering; Why celebrate El Dia del Amor y la Amistad on the third day of September? Most notably, Colombia changed the date in 1969. Reportedly, merchants in Colombia wanted to change the date so that merchants could sell more roses and chocolates in September, which is a month that has no holidays in Colombia.

Get Ready To Play Secret Friend

One of the main traditions on this day is to play “amigo secreto” which means secret friend. This game has the same dynamics as the well-known Secret Santa game played in many countries around Christmas.

Just like Christmas season, be prepared to exchange gifts with the people around you, or give your present to whose name you got and then wait for yours.

Oops… wait… There’s a twist! Once you open the gift in front of everybody, another person has the opportunity to steal your present, leaving you with the awkward question of “should I steal somebody else’s present or should I pick another one from the pile?”

Confusing, right? This tradition is called “Regalo Robado”, which means stolen gift and it’s a variation of the traditional gift exchange. It might seem unfair, but it’s way more fun to play. Amazing isn’t it? If you can’t beat them, you join them. Plan your strategy and walk away with the best gift of the day!
