Valentine’s Day is a special day of the year. Millions of cards, flowers, and chocolates are exchanged to show love towards another person. But why does our culture pick one day out of the whole year to show how much we love someone?

Birthdays, Christmases, and special events are opportunities we have to show someone how much we love them, but there is something special about Valentine’s Day. It seems as if it is almost a requirement to celebrate Valentine’s Day in our society. It is required so much that Valentine’s Day has “spin-offs,” such as “Single Awareness Day” or “Galentines.”

Our society has created these days to celebrate our loved ones and forget our everyday struggles. A special card, bouquet of flowers, or a box of chocolates on a random day could make someone’s day go from average to amazing. Whether you are in a relationship or not, Valentine’s Day allows you to celebrate with the people you love the most and treasure every moment you have with them.
