Your first thoughts about Valentine’s Day probably involve love, nice dinners with your significant other and presents from the heart, but what do people really think about Valentine’s Day?
Some people say that Valentine’s Day is no different from any other day of the year. But, on the other hand, others believe that it is a day to look forward to all year long.
“I love Valentine’s Day. You get to see everyone portray their love for others. And it’s fun to see couples show their love towards each other,” said junior Alaina Budzbanowski.
Lovers of Valentine’s Day are known to go all out for their loved ones. “I like Valentine’s Day because I get to show my wife how much I appreciate her, even though I try to do that on a daily basis,” said math teacher Mr. Stephen Simcheck.
Valentine’s day is known to be a time for magical love and “butterflies” soaring throughout the stomach, yet others hate Valentine’s Day. To them, Valentine’s Day is just another way for businesses to make more money. “I feel that it is a stupid excuse to buy gifts,” said junior Tanna Walters. Many couples believe that you must treat your significant other with love and respect every day of the year, not just on Valentine’s Day.
“I think you should treat people nice all of the time. I don’t think there needs to be a special day to do that,” said history teacher Mr. Adam Horne. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, people will either love it or hate it, but in the end it is not going anywhere.
