France: Valentine’s Day traditions from around the world

In a “drawing for love”, French singles fill houses facing one another. They then take turns calling out to each other and pairing off. If a man is not attracted to the woman he will leave the woman in search of another. The unmatched women gather at the end for a bonfire, often to burn pictures of men who wronged them. This tradition was recently banned due to the practice getting out of hand.
