“Love is in the air” – the phrase that most people, especially couples, are feeling recently.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, the gentlemen are busy planning on “interesting” things to do while the ladies are getting horny.
Uhh.. that’s what Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (JAKIM) thinks lah.
Anyway, for me, Valentine’s Day has always been an ordinary day. On that so-called “special” day – I do my daily routine, live like normal and let the day pass by. Nothing lovey dovey.
Oh wait, it’s not that I don’t couple up – it’s just that Valentine’s Day is for Valentine. It’s not Ken’s Day after all, eh?
Alright, let’s talk about the “special” activities that commonly happen on February 14 every year – and a few examples to explain why Valentine’s Day is not that “special” after all.
So sit back and relax, as kenwooi.com unveils the unknown secrets of the Day of Love.
Okay, so it’s Valentine’s Day – couples exchange lovely text messages to each other. I love you, you love me – we are happy couple on February 14.
Now think about it – does sharing lovely mushy text messages on a normal day makes it less “special” as compared to doing it on V-Day?
Next, men buy flowers for the ladies.
Now guys, think about it – do you give flowers just because it’s Valentine’s Day? What about the other 364 days?
Also, couples buy gifts and presents for each other.
Now think about it – what is the difference between giving a present during V-Day and during a non-V-Day day?
On Valentine’s Day, couples would take this opportunity to have a candlelight dinner together at some classy restaurant.
Now think about it – do you and your partner dine lavishly on any other days besides Valentine’s Day? If yes, what makes the V-Day dinner so special then?
Couples go on a “special” outing on Valentine’s Day.
Now think about it – is an outing on V-Day any different than the rest of the outings throughout the year?
Lastly, the ultimate one, it’s believed that couples will make love at the end of Valentine’s Day.
Now think about it – will sex on February 14 make it any special than the other sex sessions you and your partner have on any other day?
Well, the message of this entry is certainly not “Anti Valentine’s Day”. Definitely not.
If you think about those mentioned questions, you should realize that the main factor that makes a couple activity so special is actually all about the passion and love. Not just about Valentine’s Day.
When you are generous with your love, everyday could be a Valentine’s Day if you want to. And I think that lovers are encouraged to convey their utmost love all year round.
While Valentine’s Day could be a reminder for you to show your love to your loved ones, it shouldn’t be the only love climax of the year.
The line chart below is not recommendable.
Personally, Valentine’s Day should be renamed to “Valentine’s Year” to imply that love should be shared all year round.
The following line chart is a better statistics.
Know what, putting effort in making lovely surprises on unexpected days are always – in my opinion – more thoughtful and special. Valentine’s Day is predictable. Too predictable.
After all, it’s all about the passion and love for each other – not just about what you do on Feb 14 annually. Right?
And with that, my dear readers, concludes why Valentine’s Day is not so special after all. But I gotta say, I love you guys.
Flowers, gifts and kisses for everyone! ;)
