Valentine's Day, isn't love complicated enough?

Updated on February 11, 2009

 

Just a few days and we’re up to the point of Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day was once meant to declare your love to someone in anonymity.

It seems that in the old days there where two saints who were called Valentine and which both have been assassinated on 14 February. And that is the best reason to have a party for loved ones of course! Also valentine was a doctor who gave everyone that came to him a beautiful flower. There the good business for the flower arranging business starts. Later on people will declare their love anonymously with flowers to each other.

 

 

Well considered, you can also shove those flowers somewhere where they hardly will be noticed but bring a better smell to the environment or you can throw them just as well in the ditch because you remain anonymous nevertheless and the impact it will have will be little.

 

We have to thank this commercial thing called Valentine’s Day to the Americans. Just like McDonalds and Burger king. Completely cool, groovy, awesome! Though it can’t be denied that there are people that become entirely weak when they find that postcard in their mailbox. Secretly the idea of a secret admirer is kind of nice but on the other side there is the desire that that person has the balls to simply ring your doorbell, stands before you completely naked with a ribbon on his machine and says: “He woman I find you quite nice”

Yet the chance of that happening is really, really small.

 I wish you all a fun and nice Valentine’s Day!

      I don't mean about paying me attention. For heaven's sake. You just haven't been on much, etc. You don't have to pay attention to me...I'll come looking for you!

      Yammie:P...

      I'm sorry I didn't pay you as much attention lately as I used to Chris;) but I'm moving from one home to another so it's quite a mess here now. But I promise you, when you stand at my door I won't call the cops on you. I think you will call them to come and rescue you.

      And Ananta doesn't spend so much time here anymore. I guess he's busy elsewhere or maybe I put him in one of the many boxes around here. Maybe overloading his inbox will get him out;)

      Oil m good :P

      Gawd, you're making me laugh! I'm late, but expect me at your door, standing before you completely naked with a ribbon on my machine and saying: “Hey woman! I find you quite nice.” As long as you don't make that remark about "really, really small!" Gawd, you'd call the cops so fast!

      OK. So where have you been? And what about that guy you're always hanging around with? Nice to see you. Anyway, I have to go oil my "machine." Ha!

      Yes, we Americans do like to over-dramatize everything.  I blame it on the weather as we have the most violent weather in the world - so maybe it affects our personalities...? 

      Anyway, enjoyable hub, thanks!  Interesting to see the European view of what we snooze through as just another day in America. :)  Blogging this on over to my healing blog as, sometimes, some people take these holidays too seriously.

      Happy Valentine's Day to you as well!  Eat lots of chocolate for as far as I'm concerned that's the real reason to celebrate the day.  (placing this hub on my chocolate blog too)
