What is National I Love You Day? National I love you Day is a day to tell those you love that you love them. Don’t take the day for granted or simply say that you love someone without making the person feel loved.

Who created National I Love You Day? On October 28, 2015, a Philippine filmmaker for a Filipino romantic-drama movie created a hashtag to promote its movie named, “Everyday I Love You.” The movie aired in the Philipines made 16 million pesos (about $850,000 U.S.) on its first day of showing and received generally good reviews. Although the movie did not rise to the level of stardom by U.S. standards, the re-tweeting of the hashtag caught on based upon the name itself. The tweets reached 3 million spanning 62 countries, which demonstrates the power of three simple words: I love you.

In case you are wondering, the movie itself follows a familiar plot, where a young woman, whose fiancé is in a coma, falls in love with another man, leaving her torn between the man of her dreams, and the man who can make her dreams come true.
