"I just don't really think that giving people things is very important on Valentine's Day", Maier said. Like when we don't have it in our lives, and the whole world feels intent on showing us how much other people do, and how great it and sexy and full of heart-shaped chocolate it is.
Valentine's Day is all about indulgence, so it's okay to forgo the healthy eating plan. For the person whose idea of a big spoon is one with a giant scoop of peanut butter on it. The pendant necklace will however warm her heart, especially if you choose an endearing stone. "Every day is Valentine's Day for me because I show my love everyday no matter who you are".
At some point, Valentine's Day became a marketing scheme to push sales directed at those in romantic relationships, but if the day is about love, why can't it be celebrated in varying forms?
It is my hope that we as a society can come to the realization that Valentine's Day is a great holiday.
" Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own". Happy Valentine's Day to the centre of my universe.
Yet, we still celebrated the holiday, arguably, with more fervor than I celebrate it now.
My day is not complete without thinking of you. In Brazil, we have a different holiday for couples to celebrate, and since moving to the USA, I had never been in a relationship during the month of February.
It happened to me a few years ago, on the 14th of February, and when it did, I was so upset that I proceeded to throw half the box of chocolate at his back, while he headed for the door, and I ate the other half, in between crying.
Chocolates as customary gifts for Valentine's Day seem to dominate the game, as in Japan where the Japanese are expected to spend 130 billion yen (US$ 1.6 billion) on chocolates, according to the Straits Times.
The Valentine's Day that many have come to know and love (and loathe) has evolved quite a bit from times of desperate love letters while in prison and fertility rituals in pagan Rome. While for many, the annual celebration of love revolves only around their special someone, for others it includes their parents, friends and even pets while painting the town red with love.
It is an opportunity to show how loving we all are toward one another, and in our present social climate the more love that gets shared, the better.
Talking about personalised gifts, Vidhya, who studies in a private college, says, "I love hand-made, handwritten gifts and this is what I am going to gift my valentine this year". More so, they tell your partner that you want to wake up with them by your side always.
"I never knew that I could love someone the way that I love you". Thank them for what they have done for you.
Every time I think about how it feels to get a call like that my ridiculous brain veers back to a unusual example - that moment in Passengers where Chris Pratt gets snipped free from the spaceship and floats around in space with no hope of ever finding his way back. So, go volunteer at your local animal shelter or soup kitchen and spread the love, because what you give is what you get.
It is the time to give ourselves the love we deserve. While expressing their love on Valentine's Day, people exchange loads of romantic messages on WhatsApp and other messaging platforms too.
"In your light, I learn how to love". Getting a gift or receiving flowers from anyone, including yourself, will make you feel good, loved and all things lovely.
