Happy VDay !

sorry for the quality of the pictures but my Blackberry Curve is trying its best ;)

So here it is for another year the 14th of February or so known as Valentine's day. this year again i haven't celebrated it with no one special (obviously meaning a boyfriend ) as I'm still single, however i still had a lot of fun with friends at college - i actually couldn't stop laughin today-
Some of you guys don't know the story behind this day -to be honest i just found out today when my friend Lizzy sent me a ping saying so-
Vday has originated from a Roman who was martyred and died on the 14/02 269 AD for refusing to give up Christianity. Some legends say that St. Valentine left a farewell note for the jailer's daughter, who had become his friend and signed it ' From your Valentine'.
For the past weeks shops have been decorated with hearts and 'love signs' but i was wondering is it just me or Valentines day has lost the meaning behind it and has just become more commercial ?
I mean, retailers compete with each other to attract customers for what each one of them claims to be "the best deal" and obviously increase prices on booze, chocolate and gifts but yes apparently they are still offering us the best deals.
Don't get me wrong i love Vday -even though i haven't celebrated my self since i was born- i love seeing all the little couples together as it creates gossip as well- i mean ain't that hilarious?- but i also believe that if you are in a relationship with someone you shouldn't just show love on the 14th of Feb but show it every day and by this i don't mean buying gifts on a daily but i mean those little gestures that would please the person you love.

stay tuned!
