Ok, I know Valentine’s Day doesn’t directly relate to weddings, but with February 14th creeping up on us I feel like I need to get this off my chest…
Why does everyone enjoy bashing Valentine’s Day?!
Seriously, sweets, please help me understand! I’ve seen tons of anti-V Day Facebook updates and blog posts floating around, from single and committed girls alike, and it’s making me sad!
I know that people like to call Valentine’s Day a “Hallmark Holiday” and I agree that you shouldn’t wait until February 14th to celebrate the love in your life (romantic or otherwise). But what’s so bad about having a holiday that gives everyone an excuse to be a little extra lovey to their friends, family, and significant others?
My hope for you all is that you take time to acknowledge love all throughout the year and that the people in your life do the same. So let’s re-frame the way we look at V-Day and take it as an excuse to get dressed up and go to dinner with someone special or stay home and play a board game by candle light.
If you’re single and feeling like February 14th is a day to be dreaded, put a little effort into making special Valentines for your girlfriends… I guarantee that it will make you feel good to put a smile on their faces!
What’s your view on Valentine’s Day? Does anyone else see it the way I do or are you just not a fan of February 14th? (All opinions are welcome!)
