V is for Valentine's Day?

If I was not the first to wish you Happy Valentine's Day at least I want to be the last one.Call me crazy but I'm not the biggest fan of Valentine's Day.Maybe I'm a dreamer(and no matter how clichee sounds) but I believe that one should celebrate love everyday, should buy presents or make surprises to his or her soulmate for no reason, every single day but today.Today I saw a boy with a huge heart shaped fluffy pillow-how corny is that?That horrible image stuck on my retina.I remember when I was single I hated this day because you see only in love people holding hands and wandering around all over.It might be a cute image, but all the girls hold a red rose and a red bag with hearts-used to hate it, still do.
I must mention that V-Day was not part of my culture.It was "imported" from US about four years ago.Now it's sheer madness.The stores are full and you can't find anything if you're not looking for teddy bears, heart shaped everything, OHHH my I see red!As a matter of fact we do have a national day for celebrating love called Dragobete on 24th February, but is not as appreciated as V-Day.I hate it when we give up traditions in order to adopt other country's holidays(considering the fact that my country is so rich in holidays, customs and traditions).
The boyfriend and I decided not to celebrate V-Day, we didn't buy presents we just spent the whole day together doing nothing.We avoided going out to be hit by the flood of lovers and red plushy things.Our love was safe indoors.Don't know if you like the pictures above, but they express love, naivity, it feels like the pureness of the first love in my view.Hope you like them as much as I do.
P.S. Now for the single sexy gals and for the hot single chicos don't worry it's just one day.You have 364 more days to love yourselves and show it off!
I love you and not only on Valentine's Day!
