When it comes to Valentine’s Day, everyone is quick to think that only the guys are meant to gift their girlfriends and not vice versa, so many people feels if he doesn’t gift you something on that day then he probably doesn’t love you enough but was that really the essence of Val??
Giving gifts to your loved ones to remind them of how special they are to you is not a bad idea but giving out your virginity to a guy to Mark the day is bad and totally out of context. According to Valentine’s day history in the 18th century, st Valentine’s day was celebrated by many religious bodies to mark the day st Valentine was imprisoned for conducting marriages to soldiers and Christians which the law never supported.
This Day is a day to celebrate love among yourself and other people around, it’s not only your romantic partner that should be celebrated but everyone. You can reach out to the less privilege and the orphans around you and share whatever you have with them. Humanity needs more love than hate and it’s our duty to do so.
Love is something we practice everyday and not just a one day act, don’t be to carried away with the day and act accordingly, be kind to everyone, love is what we need.
