The Month of Love🌹

I love Valentine’s Day.

Although I have never ‘celebrated’ it as extravagantly as it is often portrayed in the media; I feel as though it aids to puts certain relationships into perspective.

After all the festivities and goals of the new year have calmly settled, February creeps in. All of a sudden, roses are in demand, restaurants are booked up, and jewellery stores are packed; smoothly introducing the month of love.

Valentine’s Day is a day of romance; originating from a festival in pre-Roman times.

If living in the West, one cannot escape the early February atmosphere. People asking each other how they’ll be spending the 14th, and the sudden spurge of heart ❤️ shaped balloons and Valentine’s Day cards on display all around the shops.

As most of this cannot be escaped; subconsciously you’re drawn into thinking about whatever relationship/or lack of relationship may be in your life at that point in time.

Enabling you to either appreciate the relationship in your life, or potentially making you question it’s romance.

Regardless, cheers to Valentine’s Day. Love can be displayed in lots of different ways, and I’m just feeling grateful right now.

Love always wins.

Yours truly,

🌹V.O.L

  1. Thanks, Victoria.

    Mr. B and I don’t celebrate it. We think it’s a commercialised waste of time. In fact, we no longer celebrate any annual events except birthdays and our wedding anniversary!

  2. I’m so pleased to read this. What baffles me is how many people moan so much about valentine’s day but not other ‘commercial’ holidays which benefit retailers (father’s day, mother’s day, Christmas, Easter – the latter 2 so many celebrate when not religious). It’s true people could show love every other day of the year but what’s wrong with a little reminder and a nudge? I don’t begrudge anyone not celebrating or disliking the day but you find people more anti-valentine’s day than any other day. I have been single for 10 years but still love valentine’s day. 🙂
    Thank you so much for the post and sharing your love xxx
