Love Knows No Season

Embracing Valentine's Day on June 20th!


Hope this message finds you well and wrapped in the warmth of nature's embrace. Now, we know this might sound a bit quirky at first, but what if we considered celebrating Valentine's Day on the 20th of June in South Africa? Intriguing, right? Hear us out!


Let's face it - the 14th of February is a tad snug up against Christmas. Why not sprinkle a little romance in the midst of the year, right in the heart of winter? I mean, even owls celebrate Valentine's Day in June, so there's got to be something magical about it!


Now, I've scribbled down a few thoughts below to make the case for this unique idea. What do you think?

Nature's Symphony:

Ever noticed how plants, insects, birds, mammals, reptiles and fish all seem to groove to the beat of day length? By sliding Valentine's Day to the 20th of June, we get to dance in tune with the natural rhythms that set the stage for countless species' love stories.

Embracing the Shortest Day:

Shifting our celebration to the shortest day of the year? It's like catching the cosmic bouquet! Many creatures show off their quirkiest behaviours during the winter solstice, and tapping into that energy adds a touch of magic to our expressions of love. 

Reflecting Ecological Sensitivity:

Think of it as our way of saying, "Hey Mother Nature, we're in sync with you!" Adapting Valentine's Day to the winter solstice mirrors the way certain species adjust their romantic antics based on changing day length. It's like sending a love letter to the environment.

Winter Wonderland of Love:

Picture this: a Valentine's Day adorned with winter landscapes, cozy embraces and whispered sweet nothings amidst the tranquillity of shorter days and longer nights. Doesn't that sound like a dreamy winter wonderland of love?


Cultural and Environmental Inclusivity:

By shifting the celebration to the 20th of June, we're not just dancing to our own beat; we're joining a global rhythm. It's about acknowledging the diverse climates and ecosystems, creating a shared experience with our Southern Hemisphere pals who are also basking in the glow of the winter solstice.


As we take a moment to ponder the symphony of photoperiodic responses in the wild, let's chat about the possibility of aligning ourselves with nature on June 20th. It could add a touch of eco-conscious charm to our celebration of love.


Jump into the conversation and share your thoughts on this wild proposition. Let's explore the idea of a Valentine's Day that not only celebrates human connections but also nods to the enchanting tapestry of our environment.


With warmth and a sprinkle of mid-year love,
