Happy Valentine’s Day!

Can I tell you a secret?

I don’t really like Valentine’s Day.

I know, not the most popular thing to say today, but you see, it wasn’t that long ago that this is what my Valentine’s Day looked like:

It’s just hard for me to get on board with a holiday that is slightly exclusive to couples only. People argue that it isn’t, but if you’ve ever been a single girl on Valentine’s Day, you know the truth: St. Valentine favors the couples.

So for all you single peeps out there, I know. It can feel lonely. And maybe I don’t hold a lot of credibility because I am happily married, how could I possibly understand? but I do. I really do.

That being said, I do love a good excuse to eat chocolate and decorate my home with hearts in a way that would make Pinterest proud. Tonight we plan to celebrate with a low-key evening of take-out and TV. :)

What about you: Do you love or hate this holiday? How are you celebrating today?

PS – Just for kicks I looked at the last couple of year’s Valentine’s Day posts, and it looks like it’s not such a secret that I don’t care for this holiday! Valentine’s Day 2012, 2011, 2010

  • I`m not the biggest fan of the holiday, because as you say, it really is all about the couples. but I guess my main reason for not liking it is the whole spending-money aspect to it. I think it´s sad that something that´s supposed to celebrate love has become a day where the shops earns millions, because people believe they have to spend money to get love. and that`s where this whole thing fails.

  • I don’t love or hate it, but I totally identify with what you are saying. It’s not been long since Christmas when a lot of people feel very lonely too, with the huge commercialisation that stretches far back from the autumn. And people have barely recovered, then it’s another over-marketed holiday.
    I guess I try to look at it as a good reminder to me, to treasure my loved ones. Too many chocolates are bad for me anyway, and flowers..uh.. wilt and die :P
