A lot of people tell me how much they hate Valentine's Day. And the usual reasons come up: it's nothing but a corporate holiday, it reminds me that I'm lonely, you don't need a day to express love etc. But, I kinda like it. I mean, all of those reasons stand because yeah, it is just a corporate holiday and maybe if you're not in a relationship you are reminded of that but... But, at the same time it's a chance to tell someone you do love them. I had a Valentine and he's just my friend but I was happy to even have a friend Valentine.

Valentine's Day can just be about love and letting other people know they are loved. I don't see why it has to be more than that or why it's such a terrible, terrible thing that people do buy into commercialism. Every holiday comes with commercialism and just because you can tack on some deep religious reason it exists doesn't mean it's any better then. That's all, really.

Happy Valentine's Day, Flist ♥
