"What do you wish for Valentine's Day?"
It is what the bus-kid asks me for a few weeks and it's the first time in all these years. As a mom, knowing my kid, I should be a bit alarmed. Is the kid saving (read: counting) it's money or... does it need anything from me?
Saint Valentine gave flowers on his birthday (picked out of the Monastery's garden). He gave flowers to the poor is what I once read. This should be the reason flowers are given on Valentine's day, February 14.
Did Valentine have a secret lover and did he give flowers to that person anonymous, wrote a card or letter with it?
Did he cover up his deed by "spreading love" in the area he lived in?
Valentines Day isn't a custom in the Netherlands. The first time I heard about it was over 40 years ago and a teenage magazine wrote about it.
In all these years the shops didn't manage to make a big celebration out of it.
You can buy a card, some chocolate, and flowers but this can be bought daily.
Sending a card anonymously is no habit and I guess we are too straight and sober to do so.
In the past, I bought a card or some chocolate for my children and that was it. Just a bit extra to color life. No one will be upset if he/she will not receive anything for Valentine's day.
I read many times on platforms in the past years,how upset or even furious people (mainly women) are if their partner/friend does not buy them something, take them out.
I feel for you, I really do. Is this what February 14 means to you? A day to be upset because you are "forgotten"? Is it worth making such a scene? Presents are not what Valentines day or love is about. If you cannot understand that you don't know what real love is and I can only pity you.
