Valentine's Day

So today is Valentine's Day, and I'm not going to wish you, now because I am a spoilsport or I don't have a Valentine, I couldn't care less especially with my finals round the corner, but because I think the whole concept sucks. Don't get me wrong, I'm quite a sucker for celebration, but I think the concept sucks. Here are a few reasons why.
1) You're supposed to give gifts, and these are the kind that no one would accept at any other time of the year ( chocolates as always are an exception, i'd take them anyday)
2) It's a bad excuse to make good money
3) It makes you look bad if you don't have a "valentine"
4) It makes it seem like this is the only day in the year when we can celebrate "love"

Call me weird but I don't think today is the day to tell your friends and sweethearts you love them, its everyday. Why can't you just go and tell them the same thing that you would today? because today is "the day"?

Instead of wishing people a "happy valentine's day" why don't you just tell them you love them. Your friends may not be around forever, and today is a "good" day to tell them you love them, you might as well do that. Thats precisely what I'm going to do.

Thank you for being who you are, thats just the way I like it.
I love you. I hope you don't think I'm weird. Even if you do, I still love you.

Why not???

So you want every day to be the same day!
What if there are celebrations on some days like valentines day or any festival day...... common man , it definitely boosts our enthusiasm, Why do you think there are Sunday's or holidays???? Just to waste time???

Human beings need difference , it may be valentines day or any fest day for that matter!
