Valentine's Day : The Ultimate Showdown
Once again, V's day is upon us. Bouquets of flowers will go on sale. Teddy bears wrapped in glittering ribbons will be on display. Heart-shaped chocolates go on sale. Hotels and restaurants will advertise their romantic candle light meals and champagne. Ahhh~~~ The sweet gimmicks of romance~~~~! I was listening to Fly.fm yesterday evening and the deejays were talking about why women make a fuss about V's day, and they were asking people to call and give their opinions. During that duration I was tuning in, most callers were women. And they were all making a really big deal, and felt that women SHOULD make a big deal about V's day. One caller even got very emotional, so much so I thought she was going to cry on air. She was going on about how V's day, to her, is a big deal because she expects her partner to actually put thoughts into doing something romantic, maybe surprise her, take her to dinner etc. Then she went telling the deejays that her partner is not really the romantic kind, not really into all these mushy stuff so she felt like she was missing out on something. And while she was sharing her thoughts, she sounded like she was choking. Another caller said she makes a big deal too, and went on to share that after 2 years of dating, her partner was not so into celebrating V's day so much now bla bla bla. One caller, a guy, said his wife would actually remind him that V's day is coming up, dropping hints that he should think of something to do. Come Feb 1st, the wife will gradually remind him "Valentine's day is coming... Valentine's day is coming...!"
The month of February, according to this site, has long been celebrated as a month of romance. There are a few versions of the story as to who St. Valentine really is, with no clear indication to which story is more accurate. Somehow, romance is involved, hence the celebration of February 14th.
If you ask me, V's day is not really a big deal. It's special because it's been commercialised to be a special day. And if you go to a mall on V's day, you'll see many girls carrying bouquets all over the place (look at me! I got flowers! You don't HARHAR!). Restaurants will be packed to the brim on V's day. Everyone will be out and about.
I think V's day should be celebrated everyday, not just on a certain date. We should always treasure the people we have around us everyday, right?
