The Day of Commercial Love

Posted: Updated:

From ART BEAUTY LIFE blog

Just when you are about to sink into the pink laces of the Valentine's Day, I might actually spoil it for you, of course if you choose to continue reading this post.

Not sure whether Valentine's Day originated with much meaning in the first place, but it has definitely turned into a holiday of commercial love, sprinkled with heart-shaped candies, plastic teddy bears and silk roses -- doesn't all this just make you wanna throw up?

Pay attention on Monday: Commercial love has taken over our lives creeping though the windows of our least favorite stores and neighborhood delis, dissolving in our bloodstream through the umbilical cords of television and radio, and creating an opportunity for superficial attention, making single people feel lonelier and setting some inexplicable expectation of love to the youngsters.

Anyway, I say if you value love, don't give in, just stay home and make love, even if it's by yourself.
