Weekly Writing Challenge: My Funny Valentine?

I hate Valentine’s Day with passion. That’s the most useless day ever. Why can’t people remember their friends and loved ones everyday? Must there be a special day for it? Here in Finland it’s been mostly been about friendship. It’s an American thing for being a day for lovers. It’s just another reason to make money. Even here shops is full of Valentine crap. When I was in school, we only made a Valentine’s day card to our friends and that was that. It wasn’t anything special.

These days there’s a lot of fuss about the day. I just want to close my eyes and which the day would be over. I don’t care about the day and wouldn’t care less if it was banned for life. It just isn’t my thing and never will be.

  1. I just saw a piece on the news today about girls complaining that their loved ones don’t get them anything for Valentine’s Day. What a crock. So you only accept that he loves you if he buys you a gift? I personally could not care less about Valentine’s Day. My husband did the dishes and took out all the trash last night in the snow so I didn’t have to. That’s love.


  2. Hello,
    I don’t feel obliged by such mercantile issue as the Valentine’s day. I see it instead as some sort of reminder: Have I forgotten too much the ones I love in the past months ? If yes, it is probably about time to change something in my attitude and not only during February 14th

    Should I need such reminder ? Ideally NO but in practise it is YES.


  3. Your blog post sums up my views about this day perfectly.

    We do not need a separate day to show our friends/family that we love them. Love does not means we need to buy gifts. Just a simple gesture like spending time with your parents/grandparents, doing the dishes, or clearing the table after dinner is good enough to show your love. And you can do that on any day. Why is Feb 14 so special?


I know you're there. Why do you linger in the shadows?
