Yeah, it's true that this day shouldn't be the only day where you treat the one you like nice. (Wouldn't make any sense) :D It's just a special day on which you go to a restaurant with your love and afterwards watch a romantic film and remember back to the wonderful time you already had ... It's not like you do something like that every day.
At least that's Valentine's day for meh.
well actually it dsnt really mean much to me...but it does to most
of the girls so...what are ya gonna do.yaknow?
That is not the point of the holiday what so ever. The act of gift giving occurs with most holidays. If you love someone and want to give them whatever its your business. Valentines is supposed to be a day to show love to someone special in your life. Although the consumer industry has taken away its original intent the fact that it is a day of love still remains.
From what I know there is a legend about Valentine's Day and if I remember right it in the legend I know this day has it's origin in a story about a christian priest (Valentine) that used to marry people and that was killed by a roman king because he wouldn't give up his religion and he wouldn't stop marrying people.
As far as I'm concerned I would never give boxers with red and pink hearts on them to my boyfriend because I don't think he'll ever wear them and I don't see the point in buying something that won't be used, I prefer buying more practical stufs;).
In my oppinion Valentine's Day it's a day when you have to do your best to be kind and loving with everyone around you and not I don't really see it as a day when you have to give presents to your lover.
