Every year you always have people who are anti-Valentine’s Day, otherwise known as the Valentine’s Day Police. If anyone so much as mentions the V word they’re ready to have a good old moan about it being a commercialised day and they say things like: “You should show each other love everyday not just on one day of the year…”
Well the fact that it’s commercialised is just the world we live in. Christmas is commercialised too but the same people who slate Valentine’s Day still love a big fat stocking (or two) and plenty of presents to open don’t they?
In reality it’s actually only commercialised if you make it that way. That’s not what it’s about for the majority of people; they just want to enjoy a day devoted to their love. IF they want to buy each other a little something then that’s their choice – it doesn’t make their love any better or any less then couples who choose not to do anything.
Oh and also who said if you celebrate Valentine’s Day that means you don’t show each love any other time of the year? Hopefully people do nice things for their loved one throughout the year and Valentines Day IS just another day to love LOVE. With so many negative things going on in the world, ONE DAY dedicated to love isn’t a bad thing.
People choose to celebrate their love in many forms it’s not about what you buy each other… Some people may not buy each other anything but spend quality time together. Some people may want to make a present instead. Some people may know their other half has had their eye on something for a while and choose to buy that for them. Everyone is different but the main thing is that whatever they do as long as they’re genuinely happy that’s all that matters isn’t it?
If you can celebrate your birthday and indulge in the narcissism of it then how can you hate on a day that’s about celebrating your love for others?
You have to really miserable to waste your energy moaning about people expressing love. If you rather just ignore Valentine’s Day and that makes you happy that’s absolutely fine. Just please don’t try to shame others who want to enjoy the day.
Lots of love. ❤️
