After having just read the dark origins of Valentine’s Day which I found at www.npr.org, I’m glad that we now celebrate in a different manner. At least I hope most of us do.
Back then it meant something wholly different than it does today. Anyone is able to celebrate Valentine’s Day, not just those drawn from a jar and coupled together for a couple of days play. From school age kindergarteners’ to love-struck adults and everyone happily exchanging pleasantries through the use of Valentine’s Day cards this day has become one full of social sharing.
Most are outgoing, happy and charming to be around. The day just seems to be a wonderful, sweet, human-sharing event. It would be nice if we could do this year round and not just one day.
Should we start a movement towards making every day Valentine’s Day?
P. S. Look to my book, What’s in a Name, to see if you and your favorite person are compatible according to the letters of your name.
