With Valentines just a week away, there's a lot lined up. Rose day, Propose Day, Chocolate Day, Teddy Day, Hug Day, Kiss Day, and finally Valentine's day.
Some might argue that it's way too many days to celebrate, but others love all the pampering. To find out what millennials think of this tradition, we asked a few of them to tell us what they think.
What They Think
"I have mixed feelings. Valentine’s Day is unnecessary, but it’s fun if you have someone to celebrate it with. I get that many people say that if someone really loved someone they would show it every day instead of that one day. But it's just nice to be extra giving and caring for one day. Most people who say that Valentine's Day shouldn't be celebrated are single and bitter." Sanjana, 24, Gym Instructor.
"Why should we celebrate a day that is supposed to show our love for others. If you care about someone that much you shouldn’t show your love for them on that day. You should show your love for them every day. Plus we get gifts for people on Valentine’s Day but love is not about gifts it’s about appreciating one another." Arjun, 26, Editor.
" Valentines is all about feeling love and appreciation for one another. If days like these don't exist, human beings may not show their love in such a friendly and unintimidating manner. Many traditions would be lost, and the notion that comes with Valentines is truly for remembrance, hope and the knowledge of loving and kindness. Giving gifts and cards is a mere addition to Valentines, it's not what Valentines is all about." Swizel, 28, Chef.
"A whole week of literal garbage. I mean who needs a whole week to celebrate their love? Rose day, hug day and whatever it is, it's so cringy. Valentine's day is still fine, I can still see the point of that but an entire week? That's just way too much. Please get a hold on yourself, guys." Sneha, 29, Tuition teacher.
"It's all cringy and a big lie. Corporate scam honestly. No one needs a whole week to show their love - they are dating they probably show each other love all the time. It's just there to make people spend more money and contribute to capitalism. One day is too much in itself, a whole week? Too much." Pranav, 24, Engineer.
What do you think? Is a whole week of showing love a bit too much or is it just a time to show your love?
