V-day symptoms


Suddenly everybody became aware of all details around them. The mood people had that day, the way they replied on Valentine's Day wishes, the way they were dressed, phone rings, the tone of people's voice when they answer the phone, whether they talked about anything that would seem like an appointment… It can be funny (and sometimes annoying) how such occasions as V-day make people, whether they mean it or not, alert to any kind of signs and almost spying on each other!

V-day has come and reactions to it were different. Ranging from that of my newly married colleague who, until yesterday, was happily wondering what he was going to buy as a present for his wife, to that of the shopkeeper near my workplace who, being completely unaware of that “special” day, just replied “God forbid!!” on a client’s “Allah yzoujek” prayer:)

V-day has come while some people were impatiently waiting for it to give or receive presents, to express their love for an nth time or probably for the first time. Others had to put up with that imposed feast of love, although they made all possible efforts to forget about it; others just didn’t care about it. And others decided to replace the absence of one special person by sending wishes and presents to friends or relatives.


V-day has come; V-day has left. And the world is still the same!

Je ne sais si t'es du même avis, mais pour moi le st valentin ne veut rien dire!! une journée comme toute autre!! si on veut exprimer notre amour à une personne c'est pas en une date précise de l'année qu'on doit faire notre déclaration !!!
Any way, une "bid3a" de plus ne va pas changer grand chose :D

Je suis tout à fait d'accord. There must be no planning in love. Mais bon, c'est une fête comme tant d'autres :)
