Valentine’s Day is also known as Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine. Celebrated on 14th of February every year, it originated as a Western Christian liturgical feast day honouring saints.
On this day, flowers, gifts are exchanged between loved ones. There are many stories related with the reason to celebrate this day. The Catholic Church recognised three saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred. One among them, an imprisioned Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” greeting himself after he fell in love with a young girl - possibly the jailor’s daughter. Before his death, it is believed that he wrote a letter to the girl with his initials as “from your Valentine” to express his love and the trend continued to be the most romantic way of expressing love.
On this day, it is said that if you really love someone then you can express your love to him or her and he or she won’t say you no. It is day when there is love all around in the air. People wear red coloured dresses to express love. To have the celebration of love, a complete week has been dedicated to love. The lovers search for more and more romantic ideas to propose their partner and to make this day as a memorable day. The best way is to give a red rose to the one you love. People arrange surprises, candle light dinner, beautiful gifts for their loved ones and all these go on the whole day.
But what I feel is why only one day to celebrate love? Every day is Valentine day when you are with your loved one. I fell every second priviledged when I am with the one who I love the most. If you truly love someone, then why to wait for one day or choose only one day to express it. You should express it at every moment you had a chance to do it because “Love and care” is the only thing in the world that should be expressed by your actions and emotions rather than shouting out loud. It is the most wonderful feeling that even can’t be expressed in words.
Love is just love, it can never be explained.
But as I see, today’s generation had really made a fun of love and care. Today, people make boyfriend’s and girlfriends’ as a symbol of status that is if you have a gf or a bf then you are a hero. They are not really attached with each other, it is just like they are just having fun, having sex and after that they just leave each other as nothing ever happened and happily move on with someone other and again the same process is repeated. They have made a fun of love and feelings. For them, its only a kind of one night stand and when the night is over, their paths are completely separated without any guilt of insulting the most purest feeling in the world.
Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love makes the ride.
Money can buy everything, but it can’t make someone to love the other person. It’s the feeling that is built itself from the heart and it is just like that when ever you see the one and get to know more about that person who get more and more attached to that person and that attachment can’t be made forcefully .
Love is the canvas furnished by nature and embrioded by imagination.
