My subject is “Do you think Valentines Day is a “Made Up” holiday?” It was submitted by http://www.southernbellecharm.
com Here goes:
Well, let me think about this. If you really love me you’ll do at LEAST one of the following… How else can you show your love to me? This is your one big chance, so choose wisely.
- buy me a diamond necklace or ring
- buy me a box of chocolates or candies
- buy me flowers that will eventually die
- buy puppy or kitten
- take me out to an expensive restaurant
- give me an expensive gift card to my favorite clothing store
Am I forgetting anything?
It doesn’t matter if you do any of the following things throughout the year… The only thing that matters is how you treat me on the Valentine’s Day. I need to brag and show off what a great man I have.
- tell me you love me every day
- bring my car for an oil change
- buy me bumper stickers that support my hatred of Monsanto
- pick up food when we run low
- warm up my car on cold mornings
- give me kisses
- make me lunch when I’m home sick
- call to say hello
- wash and put away dishes
- clean up the mess I was too tired to put away
- tell me I’m beautiful
- watch the movie I want
- go out to the store at night because I’m too tired
I KNOW I’m forgetting something.
Okay…obviously I’m being sarcastic. Yes, I do believe Valentine’s Day is a made up holiday. It’s just pure silliness. Why is it so important to have a date on Valentine’s Day? Why is it important to go out and prove to the world that your significant took you out on Valentine’s Day.
I understand it’s about the romance, but I prefer romance every day. I prefer my husband to be kind, caring, loving, thoughtful every day instead of just one day a year. I don’t need jewelry, flowers, or clothes to know my husband loves me. I don’t need an animal or nasty chocolate (that is filled with GMOs) to know he loves me. I just need him to show it to me everyday. So when Valentines’ Day arrives and he hands me a card, I will happily return the favor and be glad he is still my husband. He hasn’t strayed or left in all my craziness.
Now that is love and commitment.
