What is better than a holiday that celebrates love? Unfortunately in US culture Valentine’s Day has become over the top commercialized, like buy-your-girlfriend-a-diamond-necklace-from-Tiffany’s kind of commercialized. But, really, shouldn’t it just be about telling the people you love, you love them? In Costa Rica they call it El Dia del Amor y Amistad … Friendship and Love day. I like that! A day to celebrate love and friendship! Let’s adopt that, ok? Don’t loose an opportunity to tell your beloved how much they mean to you…whether it’s through a hand-made valentine, a phone call, a hug, a box of chocolates, or a big bear hug.
Happy Valentine’s day, from the bottom of our hearts. We are grateful for you!
