Valentine's Day

A day of love. To celebrate. To be happy. To realise how lucky we are to be able to share it with someone. A day to bask in the sun, kiss in the rain and huddle closer in the cold.

A day to celebrate your singlehood too (and why not?). Shower your friends with flowers and thoughtful gifts. Your mother would love to receive a bunch of roses and your Dad won't mind a hug. A day to gift yourself that one thing you have been eyeing for a long time. A day to gift your friends something they have always wanted - your time.



A day to release balloons high in the air. A day to buy heart-shape pillows and wear red. A day for a cup of hot chocolate. A day of chocolate-dipped strawberries. A day to read poetry.


A day to let the wind play with your hair.


A day to dress-up, even if you are only making tea of yourself in the kitchen.

A day beautiful like life. A day to celebrate just because you are lucky enough to be alive and kicking.

A day not to sulk over being single. A day to enjoy your solitude - you may lose it soon.

'Go ahead and feel good the way you want to be' ...and V-Day could be fun in so many ways.
