Every year I shun the commercial concept of Valentine’s Day. I don’t really believe in “love” in the conventional sense because infatuation is most commonly confused for love blah blah blah... I’ve already been around the block with this one and stated all my views here and here.
This year, I’m somewhat less irate about the day mostly because I don't care enough. I still don’t buy into what could very well be the single biggest marketing ploy in the world next to Mother’s Day (seriously, you only show your Mom you love her once a year? Shame on you...) but this year is a little different.
This year I’m all about appreciation and gratitude for all the lovely people I have in my life (and it has absolutely nothing to do with Valentine’s Day but hey, any excuse to party right?). So my friends, here’s wishing you a Happy Valentine’s Day. It’s a good day to be thankful and eat chocolate and just bask in the sunlight, or dance in the rain... whatever floats your boat ;D
