As we all know, Valentine’s Day is tomorrow so I thought I would weigh in with some opinions about the holiday. First off, I believe that Valentine’s Day has lost its true meaning. Just like Christmas or Easter, it has simply become an overcommercialized holiday meant for companies to make money off what should just be a day of genuine love. Chocolates and gifts and flowers can’t buy love. People who shell out $100 plus on Valentine’s Day are simply insane.
We have all heard the cliche “treat your partner like every day is Valentine’s Day.” Sadly this does not happen. There shouldn’t be one day where you all of a sudden treat your partner like they are special. That should happen every day. Couples should also not stress out over what gifts they get each other or be upset if they don’t receive the “perfect” gift. You can have a special day without having to plan an extravagant time out. Keep it simple and genuine and things will go just fine.
Valentine’s Day is not “Singles Awareness Day.” I am not a fan of this term, since it just sounds to me like a desperate complaint from people who aren’t lucky enough to be in a relationship on Valentine’s Day. I think it is absolutely insane that people who are single get all depressed on Valentine’s Day. It is not that big of a deal. I understand everyone wants to have a special partner to celebrate Valentine’s Day with, but sometimes you just need patience for things to work out and it will be even more special when it finally comes.
Bottom line is if you celebrate Valentine’s Day, keep it simple and genuine, and treat your partner with the special love that you should already be treating them with the other 364 days of the year.
