Everyone of us knows that Valentine's Day is being celebrated in one way or another by lovers young and old alike. But i am just wondering , what if no one initiated the celebration or have made a show of celebrating it, will we still celebrate it/ Example, the giving of flowers - it's as if everybody is doing it just so you could be like the others - giving it too? Dining out because the others are doing it too? As for me, i like celebrating it with my husband by dining out in order for us to enjoy life as it unfolds on occasions like this.

valentines day was a special day in life five years back only. That day i was expressed my feelings with my friend(girl). But Now because of her dad's behaviour she had married others. My eight years of bond broken that day. Any ways, Love is universal, and it is always till the ending of the world. have a nice day, god bless you.

For me, Valentine's day is another of those not-so-real holidays which the greeting card companies help promote to increase sales. If the real meaning of a heart's day is to be observed, it doesn't have to be celebrated on any one particular day. It could be everyday. Sadly, I think a lot of people are just going with the flow without a real understanding to it.

I think so too and i guess i am one of them ! Anyway, nothing to lose, my husband enjoy celebrating it with a lot of people around us celebrating it too. We celebrated it last night at a restaurant together with my in-laws and their spouses. It was a happy occasion indeed!
