Polish Valentine's Day - Friends & Family?

In some countries, the Valentine's Day celebrations aren't only reserved for people who are dating, in love, or married. Kids make cards for their friends and teachers or parents and hand in flowers to their friends and family members. This isn't yet very common in Poland. Kids do make and send each other's cards at school (usually anonymously), but the 14th of February is mostly celebrated by younger couples and people who love each other profoundly, or just started dating. Sending a Valentine card to your mother-in-law or your teacher, although it might be customary abroad, can lead to some misunderstandings in Poland, or... at least will be a huge surprise.
