Valentines Day — Its in the Eye of the Beholder

What one feels about that famous mid-February date known as Valentine’s Day depends a lot on their personal experiences, whether or not they are dating or married, and what their general impression is of consumerism-based “holidays”.  Here’s what some of our students had to say about Valentine’s Day.

Valentines as we know is a day to celebrate love, categorizing the day of February 14th as only day to love and remember special ones. Of course, love is something to celebrate as a day, at the same time I also believe that you make your valentine feel loved everyday. So all in all I think even if we celebrate this day, it should be in our daily routine to celebrate love.

What comes to mind for Valentine’s Day? Some of you might think it is romantic, wonderful and throbbing but some may think it is unnecessary and annoying. In my opinion, Valentine’s Day brings small excitement and makes one’s heart leap. According to the dating company in Korea, over 60% of girls have experience that confessed to the boys on Valentine’s Day. Also, it makes couple to see their each love. Usually, Valentine’s Day is for girl give the chocolate to boy. In Korea, there is a ‘White Day’ in March 14th, which is boy give the candy to girl. This kind of anniversary gives chance of deeper and thankful love for each other, so I approve of Valentine’s Day and also White Day.

To be honest, ‘Valentine’s day’ made me angry when I just only hear the word before. There was no exact reason however, I thought it is not related to me at all. However, from this time, there was a change in my mind. Although I am super bad at cooking or baking, I decided to make chocolates for my friends. Because I saw few giving out chocolates they made last year, I thought I could do it too. So before Valentine’s day, Chloe and Min jung came to my house to bake together, but unfortunately, we screwed up. ;( So there was only small amount that I can give out to friends. I gave them with very disappointed face however, the people receiving seemed like to be pleased although the chocolate was so small! From this time, I learned how a small chocolate can spread happiness! I was proud of myself, and I am not going to ruin my chocolate next year. 😉
