If you asked someone if they enjoyed Valentines Day or not, you’d get a variety of different responses. To some people, Valentines Day might be one of the most important days of the year since it’s an extra excuse to buy and receive gifts from their loved ones. Other people, such as singles, might view this day as another reminder of how they don’t have a partner to share this day of romance with.
There are two opposing points of views when it comes to the discussion of Valentines Day. “I feel indifferent about Valentines Day,” states Junior, Amanda Nist, “If someone is happily in a relationship, going on a date, or not celebrating it at all, good for them.” Whether you have a significant other and you’re happy, or if you’re single and happy, it’s all up to you to decide how to make the most of it. You could sit at home, scrolling through Instagram and scoffing at all the couples who spent the day together, or you could go out with friends to make Valentine’s Day not so bad after all.
On the other hand, there are a large handful of people who don’t understand the reason behind this day at all. “Valentines Day is pointless to me,” Mikayla Houlihan, Junior, explains. “If you’re a couple, shouldn’t you do that stuff all the time and not just on Valentine’s Day?” A valid, and frequently heard, comment usually involves why people use this day as one to express their love to someone when they should be doing that everyday.
Whether you love or hate Valentines Day, the way you spend it is all up to you. If you’re going out with a loved one or friends, you’ll have the time of your life whether this has been your favorite day or not. On the other hand, if you’re spending this day alone, it’s only 24-hours of torture that you won’t have to experience for another year.
