Valentine’s Day.. ahh.. the day of love for so many and yet I’ve never been one to celebrate it. In fact even when I was with my first boyfriend, we both decided that the event was over commercialized and decided not to celebrate it.
Now, with Azwaj, it is just another day. Just a day when lovers all over the world spend money needlessly to show their love for one another. Sadly it is always the women that makes such a fuss about it and it’s the men that just follow along with it to pacify their otherwise paranoid significant other.
I personally don’t have anything against the day. It is a wonderful concept to celebrate love. I mean there’s a day for everything else. There’s Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Teacher’s Day and I even celebrated Secretarial Day, although that one was more like a Secretarial Week! So No, I don’t have anything against it. Who can? It’s a day for love!
So, nothing happened today at our household for this day and it is alright with me. In fact, Azwaj only came back home from work at around 9pm bearing food for dinner. We spent a nice time eating dinner and discussing the day events.
Yes, it was a nice Valentine’s Day. It was a nice normal day 🙂
