I’m not here to bash those who hate Valentine’s Day or those who love Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day has a long history story behind the name of the day that I’m not qualified to talk about, watch this video. It might be real, it might not, I’m getting a degree in Student Affairs, not history.
It’s a cute holiday. Stuffed animal have larger eyes, every chocolate box compliments you, and pastel pink reminds you of babies. What’s not to love? Yes, it’s a commercialized holiday but aren’t they all? Santa isn’t real but we are still putting ourselves into debt to pretend to be a glorified, winter wonderland sweat shop owner.
This might be the one day of the year that a partner takes the other person out on a date.
This might be the one day of the year someone saves so they can afford a date.
This might be the day that breaks the ice for the next power couple.
This might be the day that people tip their server just a little bit better.
This might be the one day that you wear pink or red and feel wonderful.
This is the one day a year that “Happy Hump Day” turns into “Happy Valentine’s Day.”
Don’t hate on the lovers of today, but also don’t hate on the haters of today. Just love yourself and the people around you today because right now, everyone needs a little extra love.
& go buy yourself something nice from @JustFollowYourArtShop because you deserve it!
