Today around the world, some may call this day the most romantic of days, some others on a colder shoulder label it THE marketing day. As not to see it so black & white, let’s find the shades of gray in between. There are balloons everywhere: stores, street corners, even improvised mini set ups to sell muffins, chocolates and what not’s.
You log onto the internet & even Google is celebrating with a thematic Google Doodle as always. It just so happens that this year, St V’s day hit us on a Monday. Everyone is out working or at school with little or no time to celebrate. So particularly on this day, if you see your crush around it’s got to be on a rush. Late night dinner, picking up some wine on the way home.
May be you choose not to buy anything at all and not give in to the idea of consumerism. May be you choose to go through with the very essence of the celebration. Just being with loved ones around. May be you think at least a little detail as simple as a piece of chocolate is in order. Whatever your point of view is… today is going to be the (C)rush indeed.
