Valentine’s Day

Well, here in Europe, Valentine’s Day will be over in just about an hour. I thought about it on and off today — about whether or not I had anything to say about it. I decided to be quiet, since I’m so cynical. But now that it’s almost over, I need to put in my two cents.

It has been promoted along with Christmas and Mother’s Day to be an incredible day of consumerism. We are encouraged to “prove” our love with some little trinket, candy, a meal out, a piece of jewelry or some other expensive gift. If you ask me, I can do without it.

Okay, okay, I know. I’m in a lousy relationship, so why would I even think about it? Of course I’m cynical! But that’s not the point. Believe me! As far as I’m concerned, when I love someone and someone loves me, I know it all year round. Simple as that. They don’t have to prove it one day a year. In fact, several years ago, I used to get the Valentine’s bouquet and it used to make me angry. I felt like he was trying to make up for the lack of respect and appreciation during the rest of the year.

So, all I’m trying to say is: If you love someone, love them all year — and let them know it! And don’t buy into the hype. That is definitely not about love — in my humble opinion. But I do wish all the lovers out there a very happy day!
