"Oh, if it be to choose and call thee mine, love, thou art every day my Valentine!" ~ Thomas Hood.

I do believe that love is special enough to be expressed everyday. I completely agree with the viewpoint that why should we restrain ourselves to showing overwhelming emotions to just one day. But here's a thing, we have several other days which we tend to celebrate, dedicated to special people and things such as Mother's Day, Father's Day, Bosses' day and even Chocolate Day. In some countries even 'fast food day' is lionized. So, if we can celebrate something as trivial as junk food, which actually harms us, why can't we dedicate just one day to the purest and most unconditional sentiment ever?

Valentine's day does not stand for expressing our passion for only 24 hours and neglecting our partners for the other 364 days. But rather it is that one day where our efforts are given the opportunity to stand out in the eyes of our lovers. That one day which is all for loving, for dusting away all the cobwebs of worldly worries and allowing only unadulterated and illogical emotions to shine through. Now there's nothing wrong with that! So, whether Valentine's day came into existence due to a Roman priest called St. Valentine who truly sent a note to his beloved on 14th February, 269 AD, before being beheaded, signing off as "From Your Valentine", or like the Saint Valentine's day history story which says that it's a dedication to the Gnostic priest, Valentinius of Alexandria, who advocated the sanctity of marriage, or an exaggerated figment of Geoffrey Chaucer's imagination presented in the "Parliament of Foules", Valentine's day gives us a whole day to celebrate the glories of love! Now that's what I feel. But if you are not totally in agreement with me then you can read some of the most famous Valentine's day quotes, to see what the great minds in history have to say about it. Enjoy!
