Discussion in 'Festivals & Special Days' started by iyerviji, Feb 14, 2020.
I read what was on your post. And distilled these two points.
Appreciate what you already have.
Because it happens without the need for special day.
"...in such cases as these, a good memory is unpardonable", said Lizzy Bennet, a central character in Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. A Valentine's day attention cannot be fulfilled by attention-points already accrued on the books. Never been done, and not fair either.
Lots of merchants (flowers, restaurants, shops that sell jewellery, chocolates, and other gifts) depend on some business on such days. In some countries, Feb-14 is when girls fete boys, and March-14 is when boys fete girls -- and make sure their return treats are of much higher value to the girls. Economy as a whole moves ahead when all this goes on.
