Valentine’s Day is a weird holiday. It’s entirely made up to get you to buy chocolate and flowers and Hallmark cards for your loved one. Conversely, it is also made up to make those single people out there feel inadequate.
You could celebrate the Saint Valentine’s Day massacre. I guess you could celebrate Saint Valentine himself. They both involve killing and unhappiness. Let’s have a hallmark card for those…because that’s what the day is named after.
Instead of celebrating our love only one day each year (a day originally dedicated to death and killing), maybe everyone could make a conscious effort to be nicer, more caring, and loving ALL 365 days of the year instead.
But, because it is Valentine’s Day, and some people might not have seen it before, I’m still totally in love with this guy…even years after living together. He still turns my world upside down and gives me butterflies.
