In honor of this international love fest of a day here are some pics of happy couples smooching - or at least I choose to see them as happy couples and not some random hookups, but you know, whatever floats your boat...
So whether you're into the whole flowers, chocolate and hearts thing or you feel your gag reflex being triggered just by me mentioning them, I'm pretty sure we can all agree that kissing is a pretty good thing.
I haven't always been a big supporter of Valentines day as I do think it's a commercialized non-holliday where the main goal is to get people spending money on silly things. The idea of first giving a girl chocolates and then a thong to hop into (or whatever lingerie the salesclerk said would be super flattering and sexy) is just kind of cruel don't you think? The result is as always with gift-giving-hollidays a bit of a letdown if you ask me.
But anyways, I've come around and I now feel like if one day out of the year we're driven to consumerism for love, at least it's a better reason than most other days of the year.
I like thinking about all the love floating around the world this day, from the stupid roses that are delivered in the High Schools to the (uninventive) proposals that are occurring in restaurants across the globe, I hope you're feeling the love. And if someone forgot to buy the overpriced flowers today and all you got was a kiss, I would say you're still pretty lucky.
