In spite of what many people think about Valentine's day being a depressing holiday for single people, that’s not what it's all about. I like Valentine’s Day because it’s a day that reminds me to tell my friends and family that I love and appreciate them. Life can get really busy throughout the year. So I’m personally glad that there is a day dedicated to show the special people in your life how much they mean to you. Even if you don’t have a boyfriend or girlfriend doesn’t mean that Valentine’s Day is not a day for you. There’s always someone who’s day you can make by giving them a compliment and being nice to them.
The way Valentine’s Day started is actually kind of a dark tale. It all goes back to the ancient Romans and the Catholic Church. Emperor Claudius executed a guy named Valentine which led to the holiday being created when the Catholic Church celebrated his life. That holiday eventually turned into a day of love and is now what we know it as today. St. Valentine had no idea that the date of his execution would later become a holiday to honor those you love.
My perfect Valentine’s day would be a day with my family and my bestest friends. I enjoy being around people that I like and who like me. It would be full of food and games and stuff like that. In the future I think it would also be fun to be able to travel and explore other countries and cultures. I’ve always wanted to go to Europe and that would be fun to do on a valentine’s day with my future family. All in all, Valentine’s Day is actually a pretty good holiday to celebrate every year.
