While perusing the boards I have stumbled upon more than one thread full of people hating on Valentine's Day.....while this is a valid opinion for many I just don't get it. I mean sure..the obvious if you don't have somone you hate being reminded of the fact....but trth be told Valentine's Day isn't just about that kind of love.....the love you have for family...friends....can all be expressed....
. Then there is the thought that it's too commercialized......of course it is...just like every other holiday...but just like Christmas....take it upon yourself to make it less so...make your own card....instead of going out for a expensive dinner....make dinner.....Personally what I'd love to do with my girlfriend if she wasn't clear accross the country.... would be to light some candles....make a nice dinner....sit in watch a movie or just listen to some music.....just the two of us..no distractions...no timetable...just a chance to be with each other.....Everyone can express love in their own way....you don't have to buy into any given commercial conception....
....Valentines Day to me is just a chance to show those you love you are thinking about them....mind you this is something I would hope everyone strives to do every day.....but it's hard to find fault with a Holiday that makes you think twice about those in your life.....well anyway..I'm going to be sitting back..listening to some songs* that remind me of my girlfriend....and enjoying the day...sure I'll wish I could spend it with her.....but truth be told...I'm just happy to have her in my life.....here's to many more Valentine's Days to come......
