    I am in perfect agreement with you. Valentine’s day is much over-hyped and commercialized. This has removed the excitement and elements of surprise and individuality. On another note, I do feel that being empathetic to humanity, in general, is a great trait and something to be treasured and experienced.

    This is a lovely reflection of this holiday. To be honest, I don’t like Valentine’s Day really much either – I find it such an artificial way to celebrate love. It places waaaayyyyy to much expectation onto men and women, and it’s ridiculous the amount of money spent. Everyone celebrates and shows love so much, that I hate that a day like Valentine’s Day dictates how you should do it. I prefer to show love on a day to day basis, be kind and respectful, and when the moment is right celebrate it.

      That’s right. To me logically, the kind of love that is public maybe you might celebrate publicly (because other people would be in on it too), and the kind of love that is private (i.e. just between two people, or between soul and God for another example) is celebrated privately. To do otherwise is basically just showing off and competing. I mean, you can see if there’s genuine private love regardless – in the glow around the people.
