Día de Amor y Amistad: The Colombian Day of Love and Friendship

Día de Amor y Amistad is not only dedicated to lovers, but to friends as well.

Did you ever wish that there was a day that celebrates the joy of having long-time friends? Well, in Colombia, there’s a whole day dedicated to it.

They call it Día de Amor y Amistad, otherwise known as the day of love and friendship. Does it ring any bells?

If you’re thinking of Valentine’s Day, well, you’re correct. Colombia initially celebrated Valentine’s day on the 14th of February. But in order to accommodate the merchants and boost the local economy, the government moved the holiday to September. There were no major occasions during this month, and it also happens to fall during flower season.

There have been major improvements in sales since then. This sealed the deal on setting the day of love on the third Saturday of September.

And so this went on for decades until this day became an entirely different day from Valentine’s. You won’t see anyone treating this day as a novelty, not when the Colombians themselves have put a lot of thought into this holiday.

Celebrating All Kinds of Relationships on Amor y Amistad

When people think of the day of Love, Valentine’s is the first thing that comes to mind. They also think of romantic dates, flowers, and chocolate gifts.

The “Day of Love and Friendship” is celebrated in the same way, but that’s where the resemblance stops. What sets this special holiday apart is the fact that friendships are celebrated as well.

There are different variations as to why this is so. The most common belief is that it was to accommodate single people. There’s also a belief that the love between friends should also be emphasized on this day.

No matter the reason, this has been a game-changer to the “Day of Love and Friendship” known today. The holiday has given thousands, if not millions, of friendships the acknowledgment that they deserve.

Hence, it has earned a special place in the hearts of many Colombians. Some might even say that it is deeply ingrained in Colombian culture.

But the bottom line here is not to disregard romantic love. Rather, it is to celebrate the different kinds of love. Whether it’s with a friend or with a partner, everyone is welcome to raise a glass to good relationships.

How to Show Your Appreciation on the “Day of Love and Friendship”

But of course, the romantic aspect of this holiday should never be ignored. The chances of finding a lover that perfectly fits your missing puzzle piece are like catching lightning — it’s one in a million.

Who wouldn’t want to celebrate that?

This day is a good opportunity to spoil and pamper your partner like no other. It immensely benefits couples who are experiencing a rut in their relationship.

Stale relationship or not, there’s always a good reason for you to shower your love to your other half. Here are some of the many ways you can do that:

  • Choose a Personal Gift

Latinas aren’t picky with the gifts they receive, but it does help to give them something they would not have expected.

Who knows, your girlfriend might need that extension wire with magnets at the back. Nothing beats being pleasantly surprised by a gift you never knew you needed, after all.

It doesn’t have to be fancy or pricey. Even something practical would be more than enough to make her happy.

Another idea that you can take a page out of is DIY gifts. Although it might take time and effort, the sentiment surely won’t be lost on your partner.

But regardless of whether your gift is store-bought or handmade, it will surely be appreciated. As the saying goes, “It’s the thought that counts.”

  • Celebrate the Holiday with Friends

It’s the day of Love and Friendship for a reason. There’s bound to be a huge party somewhere. Knowing that Colombians have a huge circle of friends, you’re sure to receive countless party invitations.

Colombians never miss out on a chance to celebrate the holidays. And when they do, they do it with flair.

Take a different route with your Colombian girlfriend on Amor y Amistad and spend it with her friends. You’ll be welcomed by everyone there.

  • Take Her Out to Dance

Dancing is a given when dating a Colombian woman. It’s a huge part of her culture, which in turn makes up a huge part of her.

While you can do your best to claim that you’re not a good dancer or whatnot, one look from her is all it takes. You’ll be groveling at her knees, regretting that you’ve ever made her feel bad.

That might be a stretch, but surely there are some men out there who feel the same way.

Besides, dancing is the most common way that Colombians celebrate any holiday. You won’t catch your girlfriend slacking when it comes to it, so might as well join in on the fun.

  • Treat Her to a Romantic Dinner

All you need to do is make a reservation, and your holiday date is all set.

But just because it’s convenient to plan doesn’t make it any less special. If that’s how you and your partner choose to celebrate it, then so be it. There is no competition for the most unique way to celebrate this day. As long as you’re happy as a couple, that’s more than enough.

Any Form of Appreciation Goes a Long Way
