Love, Special Days

Happy Valentine’s Day

Yes, I’m a little cynical about Valentine’s Day – let’s face it it’s a day made for spending money and love should be shared and celebrated every day. Plus I’m usually single when it comes around so I can’t even pretend to be annoyed with a bouquet of red roses ๐Ÿ™‚ But I saw this Disney film short a few weeks ago being shared around the internet and I kept it to post on here today. I don’t even think the biggest cynics would fail to have their heart warmed by it.

So Happy Valentine’s Day to all my followers!

Ps: If this failed to cheer you up, try these instead ๐Ÿ™‚



So, tell me – are you a Valentine’s fan or cynic?ย

  1. There’s a been there done that age… after that you don’t give a damn to Valentine’s day or even new year day… You simply sit with your friends and enjoy the scotch with them ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. The problem is, people buy into the sales pitch, and get disheartened by it. Instead of thinking about the nice simple expressions of love. A walk holdng hands, a hand drawn loveheart. It is no use complaining about cheesy overpriced tat if you still go out and buy it. It is there because people buy it. You have a choice!

        I am a romantic, I believe the expression of love is for the whole year round and how you look after and treat someone day to day. I do like on Valentines to write and do something special. But it generally doesn’t involve money, just words and deeds. And time of course, the one resource people don’t want to give to someone else.

        Sorry this turned into a rant, but we need to change our ideas, it is a commercial rip off because most people can’t be bothered to make it something different.

        I am sorry for everyone without a valentine, go and make someones day, in France they leave a small blue flowers for someone. This gets paid forward, maybe they will continue it. And someone, with this simple gesture will have a happy memory. Not commercial, just a smile.

        I’m going to stop now and sit somewhere quiet for a while, I’m grumpy ‘cos my shoulder hurts.


  2. I hate this holiday. โ€œShow her you love her by buying this overpriced, low-quality necklace sheโ€™ll never wear and doesnโ€™t want!โ€ As I learned, even jerks usually go nice on this one day. Love is the every day, the small things. Love is filling my truck with gas or folding the laundry Iโ€™m too tired to fold or bringing home my favorite coconut macaroons when Iโ€™m not expecting just because Iโ€™m feeling blue or buying a DVD Iโ€™ve wanted for a long time and couldnโ€™t find. Buying me industrial-grade diamonds to feed the scam of a jewelry system just because a date on a calendar and some commercials says so means nothing.

    To be fair, same goes for Christmas too. I donโ€™t want people to buy from me out of obligation. If they, or I, see something and feel compelled, great. But letโ€™s not trade obligations and sink ourselves into mutual debt.

    That said, Disney shorts are always amazing. Another great one is the Jackelope. Its message about being happy in your own skin is wonderful.

  3. I couldn’t agree with you more, and I’ve never been a fan of Valentine’s Day. My OH and I made a decision not to bother several years ago. I don’t think it’s really designed for me anyway — I don’t like roses or even champagne that much, and I eat chocolate all the time anyway!

  4. Awwwww. That’s the sweetest thing I’ve watched in quite some time. Disney sure knows how to make ’em. Personally I like Valentine’s… for the chocolate. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. I used to hate Valentine’s Day because it was a reminder of my relationship status. Now, I think it should be a day to celebrate love in all its forms. ๐Ÿ™‚
