Valentine's Day

What does Valentines day means to you if i ask you?

According to many folks its a DAY for love, but my question is why only one day for love? I would say, people who are really in love they celebrate each day as Valentines day. Though now a days, it has become a FAD for teenagers in schools and colleges because their maturity level about love for each other doesn't reach to that extent where even silence speaks between a couple, that is what actual LOVE is.

Love doesn't need any PROVE, big GIFTS and FLOWERS but lies in very subtle things which a couple do for each other everyday. I know one couple who are not so young but still act like ones by their heart. My landlords in Bangalore, they have 3 daughters who are married and settled and I have seen this couple growing old together, still laughing and singing together, that's love. I have even seen my parents growing with love to each other. Love is not when you just liked the person and asked for date, its about the feeling to "grow old together". Love is something accepting each others differences with GRACE and SMILE, its all about respecting, understanding and giving space to each other. I remember once one couple said "if people start using the word ACCEPTANCE rather than EXPECTATION in any kind of relationship whether its a child and parent, husband wife, brother sis, world will become a better place to live".

So I'll conclude my article by saying that Valentines day is for them who forget to love whole year and that day is just like a reminder to them..;)

That's a lovely piece. Straight to the point. In terms of dedicating one day to love, I guess it makes sense to leave other days for other things which are just as important like your birthday, wedding anniversary etc.

Thanks for sharing.

I go by what you say, but is considered old-fashioned now-a-days! Life is a struggle and when we overcome them on a daily basis, we get to enjoy it. For that compassion, understanding, give and take are necessary between husband and wife. If Valentine's day's significance extends throughout the year, it has meaning. Thanks for an honest take, Maumita - siva
