I honestly don’t believe in Valentine day. I feel it represents love as a product of consumptionism. I think companies found V-day as a very smart idea to manipulate the prices and increase people consumption so the flowers that cost 20 dollar is sold for 99 dollar in V-day!
I am not against love celebration at all but I feel love is so beautiful when it express simply and continuously. This means that you should celebrate your love to your wife every single day she smiles at your face, every moment she holds your dreams and in every second she share a breath with you. Schedule your own love day on your own calendar, pick a day each month to surprise her with a flower or a gift and it doesn’t have to be expensive, it just has to be more sincere.
My point of the whole post is your love to your wife shouldn’t be appointed by somebody else, or by companies that want to make a profit out of you.
Notes before you comment:
- I provided my personal opinion which means that I don’t say that the celebration of V-day is wrong and I don’t force people to agree with my opinion.
- I am totally against what Saudi moral police do in V-day of forcing people not to celebrate the event. I don’t think it is sin in Islam at all to celebrate V-day and I don’t think anyone has a right to prohibit people from celebrating V-day.
- Please read the comments below. I think most of my readers share a different take on the subject. That is always what I like about blogging. It always gives you an opportunity to learn new perspectives from people.
