We all know that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and though most people celebrate this special day, some actually chooses not to. I for one don’t really like celebrating hearts day on February 14 as I find it really cheesy! Hahahaha! 😀 I honestly do! My fiance and I celebrate Valentine’s Day but on a different day, either before or after. I don’t really like going to restaurants that day as I feel funny about it and end up just people watching and giggling which could totally be annoying to other couples who are having a romantic dinner. It’s happened before (don’t worry, I didn’t upset anyone) that’s why a dinner on Valentine’s Day is a no-no for me. Going to the movie theater is another thing that I avoid on Valentine’s Day and again, it’s because I find it really cheesy! No offence to anyone and I don’t mean to disrespect. It’s just my preference. What I noticed though is that most men actually get so worked up prepping for Valentine’s Day and they spend a lot of moolah too! Just think about it, you have to make reservations to a fancier restaurant because it’s a special day. Then you have to buy flowers, a card, a special gift and maybe a new outfit. Some even rent a limo! Women have it easier for Valentine’s Day as all we need to do is get dolled up and of course get a gift as well. I can totally understand why there’s a percentage of people who doesn’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day as this day is usually associated with spending money. I know that some of us get really creative and original with minimal spending but there are those who in my opinion spend way too much money on Valentine’s Day. Don’t get me wrong, our loved ones deserve to be pampered on this special day but I think everyday should be as special as Valentine’s Day because what counts the most is how we treat each other everyday. Showing that we love, appreciate and respect each other everyday are some of the key factors in a successful relationship along with communication and trust. Now, I’m not claiming to be an expert in the love department but I’m speaking from experience. I am blessed to have found someone who shows how much he loves, appreciates and values me everyday 🙂 . But I think that Valentine’s Day should not be just for couples. It should be about families too and friends. It should be about the important people in our lives that we love and care about. I remember when I used to live at home, my Dad would buy us all (my Mom, Sis, Grandma and I) flowers, cards and chocolates for hearts day and then we would just eat dinner at home, all together. It was a simple gesture that’s filled with love because after all that’s what Valentine’s Day is all about. It’s about letting your loved ones know how much they mean to you even in the simplest but most meaningful way 🙂 .
Love is in the air…..or is it?

“ How you look at a situation is very important, for how you think about a problem may defeat you before you ever do anything about it. When you get discouraged or depressed, try changing your attitude from negative to positive and see how life can change for you. Remember, your attitude toward a situation can help you to change it — you create the very atmosphere for defeat or victory." – Franco Harris View all posts by exploreadventurediscover.com

I completely agree with you -I feel that Valentine’s Day has turned into a big money-maker for card companies, flower shops and restaurants and the real meaning has been lost. Did you know that Korea has a Black Day on 14th March for all the single people? Quite fun idea really. Anyway, good luck with NaBloPoMo, I’m trying it too! http://www.leatherandabel.com – Vanessa 🙂

By the way, thanks so much for visiting my blog! Good luck with NaBloPoMo as well! I will stop by and visit your blog sometime today! 😀
