My opinion regarding Valentine's Day is: ,, Why do we have to celebrate a certain day, when love for our dearest one girlfriend/boyfriend or even for our parents or brothers/sisters ( which is still love ) should be every day ?
Now we can see big High Street names start promoting products 2-4 weeks upfront just to top up their sales. Everything now is just so commercial. If i would like to buy a hearted chocolate box for my girlfriend i can do it any time, and is a sign of appreciation and love. For me personally a gift received on a special celebration day like Valentines's day, etc, doesn't mean anything as long that person shows respect, attention and love all the way in a relation.
