Valentine’s Day, a Few Thoughts
Newspaper columns, blog posts, small talk at the local café; it’s everywhere.
Valentine’s Day. It seems that you have two choices regarding this “special” day in the middle of February. Either you love it, or you hate it.
The arguments usually go something like this:
Typical Negative side: “You should be able to do romantic things every day, and not rely on some specific commercial day.”
Typical Positive side: “It reminds us of love” or “is a great reason to do something special.”
I really see where both schools of thought comes from. But I can’t say I agree more with one than the other.
I think that Valentine’s Day is a little over dramatized. And I know that I contribute to this over-dramatization just by writing this blog post. I’m sorry.
But I just don’t get it.
Why do people care so much?
Let it go! Most of the people negative about this day is usually people who doesn’t get a date for the evening. Change your life instead of taking it out on society.
Maybe next year you’ll get a date, who knows.
Let the shy boy enjoy that today, at Valentine’s Day, he has the guts to invite out the girl he has been exchanging looks with all year.
And I’m sure he’ll have a wonderful evening. And she will too. They’re not thinking about the higher restaurant prices. No, they’re just thinking about who should kiss who first, and when, and all this exciting stuff that you think about when a relationship is new.
Because if you get invited out on valentines day, there’s no mistake. It’s for the looove, baby. And I think that’s great.
I know that the restaurants push the prices a little bit. Let them do it! And if you don’t agree that you should pay more because more people want to eat out, eat out any other day of the year!
Really, I don’t see the problem.
Personally, I spent my Valentine’s with 3 of my closest friends.
We were all hanging out at my apartment, watching some movies, getting a drink or two, and we were just having a great time.
So, I think that we all should just care less. Let the people interested have their Valentine’s. For some people, it means a lot.
And if you don’t agree that Valentine’s is about love, but more about money, just stay at home. There’s a new day tomorrow.
Well, that’s just my thoughts.
What do you think about Valentine’s Day?
