I recently saw a tweet about people laughing and throwing abuse at others for wanting to celebrate Valentine’s Day, and it got me thinking. Some people see Valentine’s day as a trivial subject. They see it as an over-commercialised way for brands and businesses to make money, but hey, isn’t that every holiday/celebration? I see it all the time with Facebook memes, celebrity gossip and outrageously controversial tweets. “What’s the point of Valentine’s Day?” they say. “Surely, if you love your S/O you should tell them everyday?” they sneer. My answer to this is stop being such a negative nancy and leave people to enjoy themselves. If you want to have a special day to celebrate your relationship, then you do you boo!
For me personally, I love Valentine’s Day. I’m lucky enough to have finally met someone who I am able to share this day with. Ollie and I are coming up to our 2-year anniversary soon, so this will be our second Valentine’s Day together and I’m so excited. I can’t wait to have a day where I can celebrate finally finding someone who means the world to me, and me to them. But before this, I also used to enjoy celebrating “Galentine’s Day”. A time when I wasn’t in a relationship but still wanted to show my love and appreciation for all the amazing women in my life. For me and the girls, this was a time of girl power and toasting to our friendship. And so whether you’re more Valentine’s or Galentine’s, we’re all faced with the same question? What do I wear?!
