Volume 27: Valentine Expectations
by Liona Sun
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I put up a poll on our social media page, that asked people if they thought Valentine’s Day was more for the woman or the man. Was it a set up question, yes, but it gives me the opportunity to open your horizons to your Valentine’s Day expectations. It was as to be expected. 91 percent of people thought that Valentine’s Day was for the woman, where as only 9 percent of people though people thought it was for the man.
Now I’ve heard the grumbles about it is a Hallmark holiday and the response of “We don’t celebrate it because we celebrate our love and each other everyday” and my question to you is, why does it matter? Granted, I am one of those people who see a holiday and am more than willing to celebrate, but our world has so much negativity, hatred and frustration, that I don’t see why having a national day of LOVE is frowned upon.
Yes, Traditionally St. Valentines came in (go into history)
But LOVE is more than love for a partner. It could be love for your parents, siblings, or friends, it could be love for your teachers, mentors and co-workers. Open the box of narrowed thinking and jump out, for there are many other people who would love to receive a gift or card of LOVE. There are tons of single parents that have kids looking to be recognized, a widowed neighbor, a homeless man that gets more negativity than most. Do you see what I’m getting at? You don’t have to make Valentine’s Day only about a significant other. There are plenty of people in need of love. For those of you that are sexy and single, I know you get bummed out about not having someone to think of you, so do the opposite, turn it around and think of someone else. Truly enjoy their reaction and let that love seep back into your heart. We all have an array of opportunities to spread love, not just receive it. Here are a few ideas how:
- Go to the dollar store and get a bunch of those grade school valentine’s cards, make them up and take them to people in the hospital.
- Get some candy and cards for the children at the orphanages.
- Make goodie bags or cards for the elderly in nursing homes.
- Put together a goodie bag of diapers, blankets and chocolates for people at the homeless or women’s shelters.
- Make up a few batches (or go buy a box) of animal treats and take them around to the vets or pound in your area.
- Have a Single and Sexy group movie night or group dinner with your single friends and exchange valentines day cards.
There are tons of ways to spread love on this Valentines Day, you just have to see the opportunities. I know we all want to feel love and be loved and recognized on this day, but we can also do that by spreading love to those who may get forgotten on the holiday too.
You don’t have to be alone and miserable on this holiday. I encourage you to go out and create love, if someone isn’t there handing it to you. Embrace the love, embrace the holiday for we all need something to celebrate in the aggressive times.
