Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day. Over the years, I have held every possible view on this day.

Elementary School: We used to make crafty holders to receive cards and I'd write out cards for every kid in my class. I loved this for some reason. Don't know why. I'm not the least bit crafty.

High School: I decided that Valentine's Day was just a capitalistic ploy to make us all spend more money. Secretly, I was probably a little annoyed that I did not have a bf to exchange expensive gifts with.

Present Day: I still don't quite get it, but try to recognize these curious holidays in one way or another. Supposedly it fills life and relationships with meaning, or some crap like that.

What I know for sure is that we all like to give and receive tokens of appreciation, so why not? Do it on Valentine's Day or any other day of the year just to shake things up.

  1. I agree with shaking it up. We don't celebrate V day as protest to the retailers who just want it to be a day you spend more money to prove your love. We are doing things year round and decided a long time ago to not be presured into love. It has to be a free and willing thing.

    I saw your post on blogcatalog.com and decided to drop in. My blog site is listed just below yours. Cheers.
