Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14. It originated as a Western Christian liturgical feast day honoring one or more early saints named Valentinus, and is recognized as a significant cultural and commercial celebration in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.

Stores pilling up their racks with RED stocks and props, attracting couples to spend till they max their credit cards. A day where LOVE prevails all. A day to celebrate your significant others. Hearts and teddy bears all around the place. Individuals manifest the best of their love and propose to the people they love. While children spend a day of holiday with their sole lovers, their parents. Basically an all good lovely day.
Though this day brings a prologue to many new beginnings, for some, it’s not all roses and chocolates. This day brings a sunset to relationships as well.
This day packs along with love – expectations, desires, juxtapositions and extravagance. On this day the phenomenon of Pragnanz clouds the mind of many! Many people dwelled in their expectations seem to fall apart when their charmings are unable to conquer and bag the ultimate satisfaction for them. Few find this day to to make their amends with their partners, with gifts and expensive dinners to reinforce the masked problems behind those pretty dresses and suits. While few find this day an excuse to boast their relationship within their social circles, plasticizing their true feeling for their partners. This day ultimately leads to beak-ups for few as well.
Relationships, the most special experience any being engages in. These evolve with time – from acquaintance, to friends, to partners, to marriage or to just LOVE.
So consider this, commitment, sincerity and respect through all the 365 days or just a chocolate box once a year! Being there is what matters, not superficial love or conditional gifts!
