Being Single is not always easy, nor fun, on Valentines day.
However in Costa Rica, the first time I was here in 1993, I realized Valentines day here was not just a celebration for couples and lovers. It was also the day of the friendship where friends would give eachother small tokens (everything from a cute sticker to a postcard – I still have saved all of those gifts from those 19 years ago in my photo album) of their friendship. This is a way that everyone should celebrate Valentines in my mind, to not exclude groups of the population.
In Norway it is a tradition that has come with the years and its all about couples, love and more couples. It is a nice way to feel excluded and if you are in responded love – it is one of the nicest days, but if you are single or heartbroken – its quite sad to be reminded of everyone else celebrating the love you can not take part in.
So Today I am sharing the love.
Happy Valentines day to all my Friends!
Happy Valentines day to all my family members (Parents, siblings, cousins, Uncles, aunts, grandma, remote cousins etc.)!
