Well, here in Finland Valentine’s Day is not only for lovers, as it is called ystävänpäivä – Friend’s Day. Children give cards and hugs to their friends, and adults post statuses on Facebook wishing everybody a happy Friend’s Day. And of course some tell everybody who is willing to listen, how this day is corporate bullshit.
I think life needs as many celebrations as possible, so I have obviously nothing against Valentine’s Day. Every excuse to eat cake, buy flowers and have a good time is appreciated!
So I wish everybody would switch their grumpy button off and have a great day with their loved ones – be that their friends of family, their romantic partner or partners or just their very special selves.
