around the word

The International Student Center attracted a crowd with a card-making station for Valentine's Day. Traditions vary, but most international students also celebrate Feb. 14 in their home countries. In Egypt, for example, it's a universally acknowledged holiday but elaborate gifts aren't expected. In Saudi Arabia, the custom is less common. Students from Korea, China and Japan say Feb. 14 is a day for girls to give chocolate to boys, who return the favor (with more expensive gifts) one month later, on March 14.
