National I Love You Day in the United States is celebrated annually on October 14th. This national day is different from Valentine’s Day, because it is not only for couples in love. You can express your love not only to your partner, but also to your parents, children, friends and everyone who is really dear to you.

On the occasion of the premiere, the director of the film posted #EverydayILoveYou on social networks, which greatly excited the people of the Philippines, where the movie was filmed.
