Valentine’s Day celebrated in style

2017-02-24 06:00

VALENTINE’S Day was celebrated in many ways across the country, and Kokstad residents were no different as they gathered at the Nolangeni Hotel for a “love” dinner.
The hotel was decorated in everything red and white, from candles to red heart-shaped boxes on tables.
Bev Ball and Coleen Van der Merwe said Valentine’s Day is not only for couples, it is also about showing love for your friends.

Herman and Debbie Booysen were at the event and said they enjoyed the evening.

February 14 is when people give flowers, cards or chocolates to show their love for that special person in their life.
Percy Njomi said although he didn’t buy a gift or a card for his wife Zimasa, but showered her with love.

Waitress Nontle Gomani said every year on Valentine’s Day the hotel is booked.
