This is a late post, as I have missed the holiday. Well, here you go guys:
I talked to a lot of people today who all seemed to share the same opinion of this holiday. For the most part, I am right beside you. The holiday was established to celebrate a saint and somehow it became an overly commercialized holiday about romantic love. Yes, this is indeed strange and rather awful for us single folks who get left out of the picture.
But, you know what? This holiday is a joke. Celebrating romance I think is kinda wonky. So many of us hate this holiday, but I think its because we aren't looking for the right thing to appreciate. This holiday is about one thing and one thing only:
Any kind of love. I think we are meant to celebrate the idea of being loved. Not necessarily in a romantic sense, but also the feeling of loving other because we feel grateful to have them in our lives. Parents, friends, people we can consider loved ones...
My friends, I love you all, and enjoy the Holiday show.
