    So why do you actually celebrate holidays such as Valentines day, mothers day, fathers day, etc?

    I don’t see the point in it as using Valentines day as an example if you loved someone then surely you don’t a day to make that known? It’s just a day all the card companies get loadsa money from. It’s pointless really since you don’t need a day to show that you love someone or you love your parents, you should be doing that everyday and not because it’s marked on a calendar and because all the shops say you should so that they get more money.

    Anyone agree with me here? Or just why do you feel the need to celebrate something on a certain day if there’s no religious belief or historical significance behind it?

    Lot’s of it is shame. Half of the traditions we kind of push under the rug. Eating turkey wasn’t even in the first American Thanksgiving. http://weknowmemes.com/2012/11/the-truth-about-black-friday-meme/

    They are created by greeting card companies to make money. It’s a proven fact. Look it up.

    I personally agree with @Jessye2
    Mothers Day and Fathers day is to honor and celebrate mothers and fathers. And Valentines day is to celebrate love.

    I always thought of Valentines day as a day to celebrate love.Same thing with mothers and fathers day, you should love and appreciate your parents everyday but the holiday is to celebrate and honor them (the good ones I mean) for their hard work and support.You don’t have to spend money that’s your choice,you can show your love and appreciation in other ways.

    My thoughts exactly. Just one big money making scam :p The only time I buy cards is if I run out of time to make a hand made one.
