every day of the year its not nice to be without love, see several other blogpost I wrote about it. but there is just a bit extra when we move to the middle of February. then is the day that lovers matter and others don’t. its not just that day of course because there is a lot of money to be made out of a lovers-day. so the weeks before the day one is rained under all the sweet things people in love can get one other from the local gift shop and reminded time after time how great it is to be in love.
here in the Netherlands Valentines day isn’t celebrated so long, maybe about 10 years or so. it flew over from the USA by films and series and was picked up by gift shops, the makers from all things chocolate and the flower people. now its everywhere, one can’t turn on the telly without hearts flying into the room.
its not that I don’t want others to be happy and have a special day but do they all have to have the same day? there are plenty days where lovers can calibrate there love just for the 2 of them. but I do mind that its rubbed in my face that it take two to tango.
