Valentine Or True Love?

.The Peter Ijeh Column Talks About Essence Of 14 February Celebrations –

Every year, during the month of February, millions of people around the world, including athletes in various sports exchange cards, candy, flowers, jewelry, and other terms of endearment in a celebration known as Saint Valentine’s Day.
During this time couples will go out on dates, lovers will share intimacies, friends and family members will exchange hugs and children experiencing puppy love and may even receive their first kiss.
While designated as a holiday for those in love—hmmmmm!!!?? Valentine’s Day has something in common or has nothing in common with true love ?. Like so many of our traditional holidays its origin is far from holy and its celebration today is filled with materialism and infatuation to mention just a few.
“Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things”.
These are beautiful words revealing the true expressions and meaning of love. The attributes of love are admirable and should be sought after. Love is something that must be worked at and these qualities will often come natural to those who experience it.
Love is a wonderful thing that makes life worth living. It cannot be purchased in a box of chocolates or expressed by saying “will you be my valentine?” ‘Which comes just once a year!’
Love is something that is shown by the way we live and how we treat each other every day, all year round, not just on 14 February.
The whole concept of our modern Valentine’s Day cheapens the true meaning of love. It brings the plane relationship of sex between two loving married partners down to the gutter level of plain lust and self fulfillment.
If you truly love someone, then you owe it to them to not celebrate a day that mocks the true values of love, but make it a daily routine .
Just as we in bring you the facts from friction. This is true love from us to you our readers. Hope you enjoyed the Val’ Special Edition. So join me again for the next edition of this column, it’s coming soon.
Have a splendid day.
