Almost every year, I read many status’ where people argue about why there shouldn’t be a day called Valentine’s Day— and instead everyone should love their significant other every single day. I am single and I never had a Valentine in all 20 years of my life— however I have had significant person that I wanted to enhance my affection to on this special day.
The V-day Haters, as I like to call them, are probably just some cheap, single, lazy ass that still sleeps in their parents basement and watches chick flicks all day and night because they never had a Valentine. Okay lets say maybe some of them had a Valentine date or a regular one on any other day, but that date did not go so well, their date, gf/bf probably dumped them or broke their hearts very badly. Well my sincere apologies to those who’s ex dumped them really badly. Then you have those who are cheap to the max. And then those who just hate the idea of a “love” day. To them they probably abhor the idea on why such day exists. Whoever thinks that— relax, if your Mom is the only woman that loves you— be happy knowing at least someone loves you.
Personally, I am not fond of Valentine’s Day because I am always single. So I am the type person that you will see on February 15th, buying the discounted chocolates. Although I feel sad seeing couples embrace their love, it’s also a happy thought because these couples are so happy. If you think about it, there are busy people every where and they don’t have time or money to spend on their beloveds every day, but there is a specific day where everyone can do it; which makes the whole atmosphere lovely and serene.
You should love your wife/husband/girlfriend/boyfriend/lover etc. all the time and every single day. And your love should grow more and more, hopefully. But it is not a bad idea having a certain day where you do something more special than any other day.
You have a specific birth day, mother’s day, father’s day, Earth day, friendship day, presidents day, Eid day, Christmas day, Memorial day, Anniversary day etc. So what is wrong with having a day where everyone shares their affection for someone special. If every day was treated like valentines day, then you must have a lot of time and money. Another example, there is Mother’s Day— yeah love the woman that gave birth to you every day, but there is a day created where everyone can show appreciation to their Moms across the globe all at once. But like I stated, if you got time and money then hats off to you my friend.
I brought money in this because these are days when various companies make big profits and usually to show your love you would buy flowers, chocolate or some stone. You don’t have to, homemade stuff will always be First Class. But time is all what really matters. We all work, go to school, or have an unexpected issue— but time is the only thing that you and I cannot control. Even if you don’t buy him/her shit, he/she wants to be acknowledged or given undivided attention to for just a little moment. And if you can’t do that on your anniversary or their birthday, you still have a second or third chance.
And to those who are single, Valentines can be for anyone, show love to your best friend or your family or God if you believe in divine power. There’s gotta be someone out there that you love. And if you are still a bum on it, no problem, Your hate doesn’t affect me, the happy couples or the big businesses that are making dough. But don’t hate on a day that doesn’t relate to you, I’m pretty sure many other major holidays don’t relate to you either. And I am damn right sure my birthday doesn’t even move your mountains— unless a happy occasion tends to magically fall in on that same day.
Well Valentine’s Day is over for this year but there is always next year. Love, Kisses and Hugs to All. ♥
