Why Do We Celebrate Valentine’s Day?


Valentine’s Day began as a Christian feast honoring Valentine the Martyr but has now evolved into a day where we celebrate love. 


Many people hate Valentine’s Day and dread it every year because they don’t have a significant other to celebrate it with; yet, love is all around us. 


Love isn’t just what we feel for our partner. It’s also what we feel for our family, friends, and even our interests. Love is what makes us whole, what defines us. 


So yes, Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love, but it isn’t just a love for people. Who knows, maybe the love of your life is a tub of ice cream and Netflix! Valentine’s Day should be a day where you do what you love, with those you love—whether that’s a partner or your cat.
