My thoughts about the idea of Valentine’s day

Dear friends and readers, how are you doing? I am doing well and super excited about my reading week. Finally, I have a week without school but assignment. Anyways I am looking forward to it.

Least I forget, how was Valentine’s day for you? Mine was boring; I was at work all day. Anyways it is still the month of love, and I am going to make the best out of it.

According to my mom, Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love, friendship, and family, but is that how everyone sees it?  I think the stereotypical idea of Valentine’s day is built around lovers and the willing wooers, but how about the single ones.

From a personal point of view, I believe Valentine’s day is for everyone, and I mean the single, dating and the ‘complicated.’ It is a day set aside to celebrate love, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be with a lover. It could be with the family or with friends. You can treat yourself out as well and celebrate growth and life.

According to a single friend of mine, Anne, “Valentine’s day is the best day to treat yourself. Trust me I am going to the spa; then I will run myself a good bubble bath complete with wine and candles. Finally, I will top it up by taking myself out for dinner”. Genuinely I agree with her, that is another way to spend your Valentine’s day if you are single.

Being single shouldn’t prevent you from enjoying a special day like Valentine’s day. This is how I see it, “I’m not single, I’m a long-term relationship with fun, happiness, and freedom”. Well, this is my point of view, am only countering the stereotypical idea of Valentine’s day. What do you think? Is Valentine’s day for just lovers?

  1. Valentine’s day is a day that people spend money because they feel obligated too. If you show love to those around you and yourself all the time there is no need to wait until Valentine’s day to “treat” yourself or others. Don’t go broke trying to make bae feel special, should be doing that all year.
