What about Valentines?

This title would be very timely since it is Valentines Day today. To think I made this draft with this title two years ago, but never had the time to finish it. Anyway…

Seems everyone is is getting carried away by the commercialism that this particular day brings. One can’t really have an excuse that he forgot what’s on February 14 since everything gives a reminder that Valentines day is coming up, and that all must “ride” with the season. I am no exception. I made the love songs folder  my music play list for today. And my husband surprised me with a bouquet of fresh roses. I saw red everywhere: in malls, stores, on television, internet, radio, etc. With it are rising prices of valentine-related commodities like flowers, chocolates, gifts for special someone. It was even reported in the news channel that restaurants and hotels are fully booked on this day. It is as if this day is packaged more especially for lovers, the man-woman relationship.

For me what is often overlooked is that people should realize everyday should be valentines day. Given the hype this day gives us, we should not forget to show our love, affection and thoughtfulness all throughout the year. It is a celebration of family togetherness, love for our partners. Just like Christmas, it should also be a thanksgiving for the greatest love giver that is our God.
