The day was choose because it is the eve of Saint Antony day, the patron saint of the the people who want to find a husband or a wife. Of course the celebration was created with commercial interests linked with a religious background that was typical of the Brazilian traditions in the 1940's decade, something is being lose in these last decades.
Here we have a display of a store prepared to sell gifts to the lovers.

O Dia dos Namorados celebrado no Brasil em 12 de junho. O evento foi criado em 1949 por um publicit醨io que escolheu o dia por ser v閟pera do dia de Santo Ant鬾io, o patrono daqueles que desejam encontrar um marido ou uma esposa. Obviamente um evento comercial ligado com um fundo religioso, algo que era bem importante na tradi玢o brasileira da d閏ada de 1940, mas que est se perdendo no decorrer das d閏adas, se tornando completamente comercial.
Vemos aqui uma loja preparada para o evento.
