Like most of the western world, the Dutch do celebrate Valentine's Day with the typical, secular activities of wining and dining out and spending time with a special significant other. The Amsterdam Tourism and Convention Board has a great list of special events on and around February 14, 2008
. Take your pick from sensual tasting menus, special concerts, a romantic hotel package or even a love-inspired comedy show.
