Happy Valentine’s Day

Isn’t it funny how so many people have conflicting and opposite opinions about holidays?  Some people love Christmas, and other people just think it’s a pain to deal with.  Some people get excited about celebrating Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving, and St. Patty’s Day…and others complain that they are just over-commercialized and forced.

I never thought too much about it till now, but I know that I generally like the holidays more that give me a day off from work or a reason to celebrate something with people I love.  Joe and I don’t do presents—we can both buy things for ourselves that we want, and we’d much rather just spend time together (I know, gag, sorry—-but it’s just true).  My family never did much in the way of presents either.  I love my parents, and they do give me random things sometimes, but as an adult I really don’t even want them to buy me things at all.

I think my point is that if you get too caught up in gift-getting and giving, you’re missing the point of the holiday.  Conversely, if you get too caught up in ranting about how Valentine’s Day is too commercialized, you’re missing the point again.

I’d like to be content with just celebrating the holidays in whatever way works for me—-and you don’t have to agree or do the same things I do.  You can keep complaining on facebook and all, but it doesn’t do anything for you or anyone else. Maybe the holidays are too commercialized, and many people overdo the presents, but you can make it be whatever you want it to be.

Happy Valentine’s Day <3
