When Love Arrives: Keeping Traditions Alive & A Poetry for the Hopeless Romantic

When it comes to Valentine’s Day I love to go all out. Whether it’s for family, friends or partners, showering the precious people in your life with grand gestures is really not a bad idea. Relationships are a beautiful thing that we often take advantage of, so this day may very well be a reminder to show that you care!

I’d like to think I became a V-Day fan because my dad is one too. During this time of the year, I would sneak into my florist neighbor’s house to design flower arrangements for the family, I would go ring shopping with my dad who would set up romantic dinners for my mum and I would even do a V-Day “Secret Santa” with my friends. It’s no wonder my Psychology committee’s annual tradition is to matchmake students based on scientific (and Buzzfeed-worthy) surveys.

Our family’s not big on celebrations but Valentine’s Day is a thing in our house. Many people might argue that it’s fruitless but I’m not getting rid of it that easily.

    …Maybe love is in different time zone, already asleep…
    Oh ho ho… So true.
