The celebration of the Valentine?s Day in the Koforidua Municipality took a low key,?this year, unlike previous years, when the whole Municipality was virtually clad in red.
Speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA),? Aunty Grace, a gifts shop owner,? said her prices of gifts had?not changed much from last year?s.
The prices of?hampers and?flowers, she said, ranged from GH?10.00 to GH? 100.00 depending on the?size and value of items packaged.
In spite of the low prices, she said, patronage was not?encouraging.
Ruth Nyarko, a student, told the GNA that she was waiting for the night to fall to meet with some?friends to celebrate the occasion.
Afua Monica, a seamstress, however,? explained that she was cash strapped and has no lover, otherwise she would have had the best of the celebration.
Rebecca Asamoah, a trader?said, she was shy to demonstrate her Valentine mood in her dressing, so avoid being tagged in red, she wore a different colour but she had planned a grand celebration for the evening.
Media hype and advertisement in the past years put February 14 on the agenda of Ghanaians as a day to exhibit their love in romantic activities, exchange of gives and to adorn themselves in the colours of love- red and pink.
