It used to be the case where Valentine’s Day is much awaited by couples in love but dreaded by singles. In fact, some actually hate Valentine’s Day, just like Jessica Biel’s character in Valentine’s Day (movie) in 2010 D:
The very much commercialized Valentine’s Day celebration is often perceived to be a fun and romantic occasion IF you are in a loving relationship. It actually isn’t. Valentine’s Day is celebrated to express love to people we are comfortable with, be it your parents, siblings, colleagues or anyone who once made an impact to our lives with their affection and support. Most importantly, Valentine’s Day isn’t what staunch religious people believe to be – that this one romantic day would eventually lead to unlawful sex. HARAM!
Not to forget those who are madly in love with one another, Valentine’s Day celebrations need not be exaggerated. A stalk of rose and some affection is good enough (I’m helping the guys to save money :P)
The way I see it, whether you’re single or in a relationship, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to have fun with loved ones. At the end of the day, what matters most isn’t how many gifts you get, or how lavish your celebrations are. Rather, it’s your ability to live the day with passion.
So whether you’re single or not, have a happy Valentine’s Day!! ;)
