Why Celebrate Love Once A Year?

With the mushy month of February just around the corner, the author questions why we celebrate love on certain days and not make our loved ones feel special on each day of the year.

With the mushy month of February just around the corner, the author questions why we celebrate love on certain days and not make our loved ones feel special on each day of the year.

So, the month of February is considered to be the month of love and the second week that is from 7th to February to 14th February is celebrated as the so called week of love when gifts are exchanged along with many other things. Frankly, I don’t understand this. Why only a single week to celebrate the love you have for your partner? Why not celebrate it every single day? Why not make each other feel special each day of the year?

I overheard two girls talking while I was waiting near the bus stop today. One of the girls said,“How, how could he forget to bring a chocolate for me. I’m not gonna talk to him. Today is ‘Chocolate Day’ and he didn’t give me a chocolate? So bad of him”

Yes. I was literally about to burst out laughing but, managed to control myself. Poor guy who forgot to give her a chocolate! (lol) Like seriously girl? Just because the guy didn’t give you a chocolate on “CHOCOLATE DAY” you are gonna get upset and fight with him over this. Did you appreciate him for all the other things he does for you? I would feel much more happy if my guy gives me a chocolate out of the blue, rather than on a so called created day!

A whole week. God! This day,that day, XYZ, urgh!! This is what LOVE is for people nowadays? What if the guy /girl  give you gifts, celebrates that whole week with you but on all the other days doesn’t treat you well- Doesn’t love you with all his heart and do not respect you enough? Would that be okay? So, what is worse? Not receiving a chocolate on ‘Chocolate Day’ or this? Grow Up!!

You want to show your love? Appreciate your partner. Do it randomly. Plan surprises when the other person isn’t expecting it. And all this comes much later. Firstly, learn to love your partner. Respect them. Value them. Make them feel special, not only for a day, a week but, every single day. The best gift would be, understanding each other when things get difficult,trusting each other during tough times, being a team, being each other’s strength and each other’s best friend. This is what love is all about. Celebrate it, everyday!
