[media-credit id=29 align=”alignnone” width=”300″][/media-credit]Valentine’s Day: an exciting day dedicated for love, or a hoax?

Every Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day arrives and many students feel both excited and dejected.

“Valentine’s Day is fun because you get to bring out a side of you that the person you like does not get to see very often,” commented Connor Fenech.

Although some students tend to look on the bright side of the holiday, others disagree.

Taylor Choye said, “I think if you have a special someone, it’s a special day to show them how much you care. If you are single, it’s kind of a slap in the face.”

Still, others think it has both good and bad qualities.

“I think it’s great when you have that special someone but when you’re single, it can feel really lonely,” replied Melissa Wood. “Also Valentine’s Day is too commercial, it should be more simple and about spending time with the one you care about and showing them how much they mean to you.”

Many students feel the same as Shawna McDonough, “Well, I’m excited for the chocolate.”

Lauren Bruguera similarly explained, “Valentine’s Day is cute and let’s face it, who wouldn’t love an excuse to eat chocolate?”

Most believe it is a harmlessly fun holiday, while others think that it can be hurtful if there is no special someone.

Although most students appear to be unaware of the real beginning, Valentine’s Day arose from a feast that Saint Valentine, saints of ancient Rome, used to have on Feb. 14.
