Remember this?Â Still stands:
Yes its absurd. Yes its cliched. Blah blah blah. I’m going out on a rickety limb to say that I love Valentine’s Day. I look forward to it. I love trying to find the right thing and I love sharing it with my lady. Yes its just another in a long line of strategically placed hallmark holidays, but so what? Everyone says why should you only use one day a year to show someone you love them, but they’re missing the point. As I see it, the point is this: Yes, you should cherish every moment of every day, but how about once a year you take a day and really celebrate that love! Give it a little something extra (and I don’t mean good and services, though they’re nice too)! Share it with the world! Sure not everyone has someone to share it with, but that doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy it themselves. Take a day, treat yourself! One day out of the whole year to celebrate the awesomeness of our animal, emotional selves is not so bad. Its something we are truly blessed with. The capacity to love, and to share that love with others- Its what makes us, well, us. I see all the crassness and I see all the lameness, but I choose to embrace it, and make it my own, and enjoy this one day where we get to recognize the very best part of our nature.
