So it's Valentine's once again. People are busy buying gifts for their loved ones, planning how to celebrate that day. The craze has taken such a gigantic size that I often think someday the authorities are surely to declare it as a National Holiday.
Jokes apart, I have seen many of us actually shun this day of love. There reason, for two people in love, 365 days a year are a Valentine's Day in itself, so why to celebrate a day separately for the same! Quite true, but then it sounds somewhat like grapes are sour.
Why do we celebrate Independence Day then, after all we are Independent throughout the year on our own accord, aren't we? Why to celebrate Holi when we are filling our lives with colors each and every day?
I too would not be celebrating Valentine's Day this year. To celebrate this day you need someone to love you, romantically. I don't have any such person. So even though I bought gifts (I'm a love sick puppy, in case you didn't know), I don't have anyone to give them to. So could you tell me what do you do on a lonely Valentine's Day like this?
