Your say: Valentine’s Day

Ciao asks, Inner Westies answer…

What are your thoughts about Valentine’s Day?

“Not that you need a special day to make your significant other feel special, but it is nice to know that there is a day set aside on the calendar where you can spoil your lover rotten!” Izzy, Stanmore

“It’s not my thing. I do not rate it as a day but then at the same time if I don’t do something I’m slightly depressed.” Sarah, Lewisham

“I find it depressing if I don’t do something on Valentine’s Day, but I think it’s just a commercial holiday. But that’s kind of a contradiction and that upsets me.” Megan, Newtown

“I find it to be an unnecessary commercialised holiday. I appreciate the sentiment of expressing love but I don’t know why there has to be a predesigned date for it. It doesn’t make any sense to me.” Jacinta, Marrickville

“Valentine’s Day is bullshit.” Isabella, Stanmore
