What’s With Valentine’s Day ?
February 14, 2016 11:19pm CST
Yesterday was Sunday and it’s Valentine’s day . As I have said before , my hubby only go to church when he feels like it and on occasions. And since yesterday is Valentine’s day he went to church with me , which completed my Valentine’s day already . The priest greeted the parishioners with Happy Valentine's day greeting and his sermon is related to that . Then , we went to the mall and ate lunch . Not so romantic since it’s not dinner , but it’s our date for the occasion . We saw a lot of people in the mall . Some are holding bouquets of flowers . There’s an acoustic singer by the lobby and people are listening to her love songs . Fastfoods and restaurants were filled with people . It seems the people really celebrate this special day . Even at FB everyone is posting pictures of the bouquet of flowers they received . Oh my ! What with Valentine’s Day really , that people seemed to be fuzzy about it ?

We don't allow commercialism to take advantage of our Valentine's day now that we are already married. I myself have told my husband to stop giving me roses because it is not practical anymore because of the high price. He gives me roses other days but not Valentine. We did not go out yesterday, only went to church because restaurants and the likes are crowded and i hate that. We are instead going out for dinner tonight.

Hmmm, I am single and well, for me. I can say that Valentines is just others way of fully expressing their love to their partners with expensive gifts (lol - not bitter but that is how I see it sometimes). Same like Christmas - we can always choose to celebrate as how we are accustomed to.

How sweet of your husband to give you flowers always . But anyway , since couples don't need to be reminded that they are loved by their partners because they always feel that way, just being together on this special day of the hearts is already enough . Time for each other is the nicest gift actually , don't you agree ?
