The Love Day Is Everyday
Today’s Valentine’s Day. There’s a whole day devoted solely to love. Does that make any sense? Nah. Love makes us all crazy. But it’s fun too.”

Love Day – Real or Unreal?
I have been hearing so many different things about the very special love day… There are few who absolutely love the day, have taken a leave from work and have planned a very romantic day with their lovers. And there are others who absolutely abhor this day and the idea of celebrating love on one special day!
I would not talk about the former lot, but the later really made me think. Well, I completely agree that this whole idea of Valentines day and celebrating it, is bogus and fake. Yes!! I mean, come one guys. Lets face it. Its crap! And everyone knows that, including people who celebrate this day with full zeal and fervor.
Valentines Day Everyday?
The simplest and the easiest argument that I favor strongly is- why do you need a special day to celebrate your love. You can celebrate it daily!
Yes, indeed you can celebrate it daily. Why not? And who is stopping you? But… please for a moment pause, and try to put little pressure on that sweet little brain of yours and then, try to touch the memory vein in your head, and now think and try to remember when was the last time you bought flowers for your lover? When was the last time, you went out on a romantic dinner? When was the last time, you held your lover’s hand, and expressed your feelings in a true out-pour of emotions? When was the last time, you two really spent time with each other, without any external disturbance (including tabs, phones and TVs)? When was the last time you made her/him feel special? And of course I’m not talking about birthdays or anniversaries!
Now try to remember when was the last time you said “I love you” with exactly the same feelings that reside in your heart and not just for the heck of saying it? I am sure the answer to most of the above mentioned questions, would be a kind of difficult, isn’t it?
Well, easier said then done. So, now that question is- what’s the harm in celebrating love on one special day, isn’t it making things easier for you? Isn’t it creating the entire environment of love around you? Isn’t it making you think that you should do something special for “someone special” in your life. May be its bogus, but it’s worth it! Think this day as an opportunity to make your lover feel special, a chance to celebrate this amazing feeling of love, a day to take an off from all your stress and tensions and spend it with the one you love.
And if you are someone who haven’t still got a chance to fall in love and have no lover, chill. Celebrate this day with your best friends, your siblings, your mom, your cousins. Celebrate it with whom-so-ever you love the most in the whole world. It’s about celebrating love. And love can be of any form. Everyone, without exception loves someone in this world. So, it means everyone has a reason to celebrate love, don’t just stop yourself.
I still want you to think of everyday as Valentines day, but like I mentioned easier said then done! So, take a small step first, do celebrate on this very special day of love, it’s a great reminder of people around you, it’s a great reminder of emotions and feelings that make our life extraordinary. So, cheer up, smile, buy some flowers for the one you love, buy chocolates for that special one and go and celebrate this stupid love day with loads of love, hugs, smiles and happiness! Tell them how much you love them.
Its wise to be stupid sometimes!
