I personally believe valentines day is nothing more than a consumer driven society’s infatuation to market an idea in order to produce profits.
I know that comes across as a crabby cynical point of view. I suppose it is, however I can justify it by saying that the people I care about know how I feel all year-long and I really don’t need this market driven hype placing pressure on the people I love to somehow meet a conjured up expectation that somehow if you don’t buy me something than you must not love me!
I have given valentines and will continue to give and do things for the ones I love regardless of what bogus expectations the machine called commerce tries to place on us.
That being said, I have no strong feelings one way or another about it… 🙂
