COUPLES, partners and lovebirds converged at flower shops in the capital city in a mad rush for flowers on Valentine's Day.
People of all walks of life took time out in buying the best flowers for their loved ones.
Deliveries were also made to workplaces and homes.
Flower shop Tadra Flowers was inundated with shoppers coming in to buy flowers or making arrangements for deliveries.
Store manager Atelaite Kada said sale of flowers had been good and red roses ran out of stock.
"Imported natural red roses have gone out of stock as people gifted their loved ones or made arrangements for deliveries," Ms Kada said.
She said apart from roses, other flowers were also hot sellers, which included bouquets.
Meanwhile, people also flocked various restaurants during lunch hour to treat their loved ones with special foods.
Krishan Naiker of Nausori said he took his girlfriend out on lunch and bought her a perfume set as a gift.
He said Valentine's Day reminded him of love and care.
"We should not celebrate Valentine's Day on one particular day. It should be celebrated everyday to end differences between couples," Mr Naicker said.
According to Wikipedia, a free online encyclopedia, Saint Valentine's Day — commonly known as Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine — is observed on February 14 each year.
It is celebrated in many countries around the world, although it remains a working day in most of them.
