Why love should always be to fore on Valentine's Day
Love will certainly be in the air today. A cynic might point out that florists and restaurant owners will love the huge boost to their trade, but surely we have not become so jaundiced in the modern age that we cannot rejoice in declaring love for our nearest and dearest.
At its most innocent level, think of all those crayoned drawings by primary school children making their mums their Valentine for the day.
And even if the commercial world seeks to cash in on our emotions, it is still the right thing to show a spouse, partner or boyfriend/girlfriend that we appreciate them for all they do for us throughout the year.
