Valentine's Day

Only if you had spent the latest two weeks in Mars you would have missed knowing Valentine's Day is saturday. The promotions are everywhere, the adverts are more than everywhere.

I have been reading a lot of people saying "I don't like Valentine's Day", and I think it's a bloody lie! Well, maybe not entirely a lie... but people should come clean about it and write instead "I won't be celebrating Valentine's Day this year". Because in the end it's all about having a boyfriend/girlfriend/relationship. 95% of those who say they hate Valentine's Day are currently off a relationship! Because if you have a relationship, you celebrate Valentine's Day! Simple as!

And before you start calling me names, let me just also say I view Valentine's Day as nothing but a commercial gimmick, and rationaly speaking, the amount one spends on a partner should never serve as representation of your love. And that if you love someone, you should show it every day of the year, not just on February 14th. But what a turn-off it would be if on that special date we just did what we normally do!!

And this is why my love can rest assured I will celebrate Valentine's Day on saturday!

Eu adoro surpresas! Quer seja dia dos namorados ou não. E não precisa de ser nada excêntrico. Basta apenas algo que demonstre o carinho,amor,paixão que o outro(a)
sente.

But Wask, is not what is all about? Isn't the commercial industry forcing us to celebrate love in a particular day of the year? Is like if i do not feel like 14 of Fev is my valentine day, somehow i will have to do it, just because everybody expects it!

Yeah sure, we can choose any other day, but when this one in particular comes, and we don't celebrate it is like been left out of the party... because we are all brain washed!

Eu vou celebrar o dia com uma amiga! porque o meu namorado vai estar a trabalhar. Não tenho nada contra o dia mas não lhe dou muita atenção porque o meu namorado faz anos dia 15...eheheh
