Valentines Day is a holiday either loved or hated by everyone. It has its place in society as either a romantic day for couples, or, as stated very often on tv shows, “a made up holiday created by the greeting card company”. As soon as Christmas over stores pull out the trees and put in red hearts and advertise everything that you might need for your special someone. Shelves are lined with heart shaped gifts, flowers and candy. It is clear that many stores will advertise very heavily for the holiday. Many people also do not know any origins of how the holiday came to be. People hear what is normal to do to celebrate the holiday and go along with that. So though it seems to be more of what many call a “made up holiday”, people do not view it negatively as it gives many the excuse to do something extra special to show appreciation to a significant other, or loved ones in their life. This is what most closely resembles the accepted positive ideology of the holiday. I find it to be one of the most unique holidays in society just because of the fairly even divide of people who accept and think positively of it and those who dislike. But every year it still comes and is still celebrated or rejected by everyone.
