Gaza Strip, February 14, 2010 (Pal Telegraph)- Red roses, red teddy bears, red candles; that’s what you see when you enter any gift shop in Gaza on this day.
People in Gaza escaped try to escape the dreariness of their days are trying to invent means for living their by giving gifts to each other.
Large amounts of red roses that could not be exported were given as gifts on this special day.
However, some people reject Valentine’s Day as out of keeping with Gaza’s Islamic culture.
Joy anywhere by any means is always welcome, and Valentine’s Day is one way of finding it.
