As another Valentine’s Day comes to a close, one can’t help but contemplate the holiday in general: Love, hearts, giant teddy bears, and chocolates. When it comes to Valentine’s Day, some people jump with glee, while others shake their heads and frown with disgust. All over America, people celebrate with their loved ones this over-hyped, filled with love holiday. But no one ever really stops and questions the truth on how others really feel. While some people enjoy the holiday, in reality there’s tons of people who think it’s a pointless day.

One RCHS student, who didn’t want to be named, said, “To me, Valentine’s Day is a holiday that companies made up to sell products.”

“There’s really no meaning to it,” he added nonchalantly.

Another student said, “I feel like its an overrated holiday. You shouldn’t just show love on one day of the year. You should always be able to bring flowers to that special someone.”

Her friend then jumped in and added, “I feel like it should be a holiday where students get a day off, so we can spend it with the ones we love. It might as well be.”

According to many legends, Valentine’s Day  was actually brought up by the Romans, starting with a festival called “Lupercalia” where the men would draw women’s names from a box. Once chosen, they became boyfriend and girlfriend and some would even get married. Although this legend has been said to be true, many people still believe Valentine’s Day was made up by all the candy companies to sell more of their products.

But whether all the legends are true not, people will still pass along the same traditions from every year and continue to either be happy with this day of celebration or not.
